New in Visual3Dv6

Visual3D v6 contains more changes than any other Visual3D release. The new file format (CMZ) saves link-model data so large files will open much faster, without the need for a model recalc. With the new 64 bit version of Visual3D along with multithreading, processing time will be significantly reduced.


NOTE: plug-in modules, real-time, and MatLab support are ONLY 32-bit compatible. The 64-bit version will allow for better use of memory, but does not support exporting to MatLab or some real-time functionality. Install the 32-bit version for full compatibility.


Although there have been many enhancements to Visual3D, below is an outline of just some of the new features and new commands.

Performance Changes

  1. A 64 Bit version of Visual3D
    1. This will resolve issues for users with large CMO's that often hit the "Out of Memory" error
  2. Multithreading
    1. C3D files are processed simultaneously for much faster processing times
  3. New CMZ file format for saving files
    1. Faster file open times
  4. Library Enhancements:
    1. Segment animation
    2. Ability to create new Link Model Based items
  5. Performance enhancements for faster model building and IK computations times
  6. Incorporate CalTester+ force platform corner location into Visual3D
  7. Inverse Kinematics Enhancements:
    1. Motion Constraints
    2. Boundary Conditions

Interface Changes

  1. Support for 4K monitors
  2. New toolbar icons
  3. Enhanced graphs with smoother lines
    1. Will also fix print to PDF issues for some users when printing dotted lines
  4. Color coded text editor for the pipeline
  5. Modeless dialogs for:
    1. Force Assignments
    2. Force Platform Parameters
  6. The Query function was added to the Reports
  7. Copy Landmark button

Event Creation

New/Modified Commands (click to expand)


Event_Define_Event_Sequence - Event Sequences can be used to define sequences of events such as right stance, or the first 20 cycles. Event sequences can then be used in place of events in subsequent processing.


When defining maximums & minimums in Visual3D, a new parameter was added which allows users to define the threshold. This parameter was added for the following commands:


Event Management

New/Modified Commands (click to expand)


Event_Sequence_Delete - Event Sequences can be used to define sequences of events such as right stance, or the first 20 cycles. Event sequences can then be used in place of events in subsequent processing.

File Management

New/Modified Commands (click to expand)


Set_Text_Item - Text Data is a new "Signal Type" which was added to the data tree. This allows users to define strings in the CMO file. For example, a signal can be created called "Affected_Side" and the user can specify the Left or Right side here. Files can be queried using text data as well.

Force

New/Modified Commands (click to expand)


FP_Auto_Baseline - This command can be used to automatically determines the zero period and the force platform minimum value. This is especially helpful for treadmill trials when it is difficult to determine a period when the treadmill is unloaded and for front to back treadmills where a high force platform minimum value can cause discontinuity in the force signal.


Locate_Force_Platform_Corners

Modify_One_Force_Platform

Reset_Segment_Assignment_To_Force_And_COP

Matlab

At this time Matlab commands are only available in the 32 bit version of Visual3D. This will be changing soon.

For a sample reading the Visual3D text file into Matlab, see here.
