TrackMen has multiple 3D real-timeTracking solutions among other things for camera tracking.
Add a connection to TrackMen
The TrackMen IO can be added with a click on the (+) within the IO Connections.
Settings to receive TrackMen data
Within the “Inspector” the “Local Port” needs to match with the settings from TrackMen.
Define the connected “Interface” from the local PC where the TrackMen system is connected to.

Adding a map input
To link the incoming TrackMen data stream to a camera object it’s necessary to add a map input.
The map input has multiple check boxes to enable/disable different options from the TrackMen protocol.
|Lens Data||Physical lens values|
Adding a map output
Within Stage Precision it´s also possible to send out the TrackMen protocol.
Enable the “Output” within the IO Connection and define the remote host and port.
Simply add a map output to a camera object.
