Release notes
Demo version vs. professional version
Please mind, that the demo version has limited functionalities compared to the professional desktop version.

ViveLab has four main menus. The Main menu contains menus of transformation, selection options, viewpoints, and a ruler. Using the professional desktop software, versions of the work can be saved in a dedicated folder which is not possible in the demo version.

In the Human menu, mannequins are created and adjusted for bodily dimensions and motions/postures. While the professional version allows the creation of numerous humans, the demo provides only one human figure for a scene. The analyses methods for the motions and postures can be selected in the Human menu. Usually, imported motion sequences of any length are usable, while in the demo version only the first 60 seconds part of the timeline is available for import and analysis. Therefore, documentation options are restricted as well. Statistical results are counted from the first 60 seconds, while single posture documentation is possible only for the 30th second of the motion. In the professional version, these factors are unlimited.

In, the development phase, Task builder menu complex motions can be added to the animation. In the Machine menu the objects of the scene are created or imported. Please note, that in the desktop versions, collaboration options are invalid.
