    Release note for 1.8.8


    In order to install BTWYG R35, you must first uninstall BTWYG R32 using BTWYG R32’s installer, not BTWYG R35's installer as stated in the document ‘Server Update Instructions’.

    Dongle Date Requirement:

    Major changes:

    · BTWYG R35
    · Soft Bodies in BlackTrax
    · Wider outlier filter parameters

    Known issues:

    · When a recording is stopped in Motive with the Edit Tools window open, Motive will crash
    · Motive reconstruction bounds are inverted on the X axis (minimum X actually affects the maximum X)


    Secondary Applications:

    Compatible with RTTrP Versions:

    Features and Fixes:
