The Motion Detector Tool lets you divide a video input into any amount of columns and rows. It displays the color difference per segment caused by moving objects and outputs this data via the Motion Detector Input Node for further processing.

Open the Motion Detector Tool from the Devices menu. In the Motion Detector Tool you set up and connect to the unit/stream. Once connected you see the video input displayed in the preview and you can start setting up your tracking.

 

Please note:
This tool as well as the other video processing tools inside WD need a lot of RAM and CPU power!
