Scenarios in MVN

Depending on the MVN software type different scenario's are available:

Scenario MVN Animate MVN Animate Pro MVN Analyze
Single Level
No Level
Multi Level
Soft Floor X
Vehicle X X

The scenario depends on the environment where the subject is being captured as well as the desired output quantities,

Below, an overview is given of the available scenarios and in what situation they can be used. 

Scenario Description Available in HD Quality*
Single Level This is the default scenario that should be used when interactions of the subject are known to be limited to a single level. The behavior of the contact points, which can be anywhere on the body, is confined to a zero level floor. If the subject is, for example, climbing some stairs, each step is corrected towards the zero level floor and the height information is lost.  Yes
Intended for MVN Animate (3D character animation) users, for enhanced contact detection and production-ready data
No Level For users who are not primarily interested in floor interaction and position changes in space, the No Level scenario is recommended. In this scenario, the pelvis is fixed in space and all kinematic quantities are expressed relative to the pelvis. This could be of interest, for instance, for the analysis of human body joint angles in biomechanics, or for applications in which ground contacts are not clearly defined (like for ice skating). Yes
Intended for MVN Analyze (human motion analysis) users, for the highest quality 3D kinematic data
Multi Level The use of the Multi Level scenario is recommended for subjects who interact with floors/objects that are not strictly single level, e.g. stair climbing, sitting, etc. It should be noted that some minor drift in height might still occur. 

 

Yes
Intended for MVN Animate (3D character animation) users, for enhanced contact detection and production-ready data

 

Soft Floor This scenario is intended for cases where floor interaction with a single level floor is important, but the floor is not strictly zero level, such as when walking on a soft surface. No
Vehicle  The vehicle scenario is very similar to the No Level scenario with an adjustment to the acceleration divergence monitoring. Meaning it can cope better with long and slow accelerations, such as when turning a gradual banking in a car.

Yes
Intended for MVN Analyze (human motion analysis) users, for the highest quality 3D kinematic data

 

* HD Quality: choosing a scenario that is available in HD quality means that the HD Reprocessor can be run with this scenario selected, raising the data quality. Choosing a scenario which is not available for HD reprocessing will result in the chosen scenario in normal quality (automatic reprocessor). 

You can choose your preferred scenario in the configure session window while inputting your MVN system settings (live mode), or change the scenario to a different one in the Setup window > Data Fusion tab (file mode).
