How do I import Data into a Polygon Report?

The Data Bar is empty until you import trial data (*.c3d files) that were processed in Vicon Nexus. Data can be imported from either the Data Manager (Eclipse) or the Home Ribbon. You can import a variety of files into Polygon reports, including web pages, videos, and more. Most files become panes within Polygon for which you can create hyperlinks. Files that you can import:

Vicon (*.c3d) Polygon External Data (*.pxd)
VCM Report (*.gcd) 3D Mesh (*.obj)
Marker Set (*.mkr) Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf)
Video (*.mpg, *.avi) PowerPoint (*.ppt, *.pptx)
Web Page HTM

On the Home ribbon, click the Data Manager button or press F2.
