This node reads bone data from a Perception Neuron motion capture suit and applies it to Bone nodes, either via direct input links or by a connection to the root of the target hierarchy.
A network connection must be made to the Axis Neuron software which provides a stream of bone data from the suit. The server address and port must be entered to match the output address and port in Axis Neuron. If there is no connection the node will be hatched out in red.

The input skeleton the node is applied to must have been designed to receive motion capture data: the bones must be named, oriented and arranged appropriately. Mixamo rigs are a good reference.


Name Description
Position X Move its position along the x-axis in local space.
Position Y Move its position along the y-axis in local space.
Position Z Move its position along the z-axis in local space.
Rotation Heading Rotate the object about the x-axis.
Rotation Pitch Rotate the object about the y-axis.
Rotation Bank Rotate the object about the z-axis.
Scale X Scale along the x-axis.
Scale Y Scale along the y-axis.
Scale Z Scale along the z-axis.

Inherit Transform Channels

Toggle which transform channels should be inherited. By default, all are on.


Name Description
Axis Neuron Server Address The address / IP of the Axis Neuron server providing the skeleton stream.
Axis Neuron Server Port The port of the Axis Neuron server providing the skeleton stream.
Rotate Bind Pose Joints By Facing Direction Determines whether the input skeleton has been rigged so that the bones in their bind pose are rotated to point in the direction of the next bone, or whether they are unrotated in their bind pose.
Input Skeleton Scale Scales the size of the input skeleton.


Name Description Typical Node Input
Hierarchy Root The root of the input skeleton to be driven by motion capture. Root Node
Transform Modifier Links all transform properties to the input node. Null
Target Node Always faces the x-axis towards the inputs anchor point. Null
Local Transform Override Override the transformation values of the node, relative to its parent. Null
