View Full Version : Converting motion control data from a Milo

07-26-2011, 02:22 PM

I just started a job that is based on data from a motion control camera rig - a Milo. The operator gave me .MOT files, .FBX files and .XYZ files. The MOTs are off, the FBXs are almost useless. The XYZ files have position & aim data for every frame.

Does anyone know of a conversion utility (XYZ to MOT or LWS), so I don't have to use Notepad to convert these XYZ files (which are ASCII) into working MOT files? I've checked on the Milo website...nothing.

Using that most amazing of LW 3rd party applications "notepad.exe" I re-arranged the data from Milo's .XYZ files to make most of a .MOT file. With the header from a working MOT file, I got what I needed.

Not elegant, but it got the job done.
