Orion Command Server

Orion version 1.0 and up supports a command server which allows remote start and stop of Orion and remote control of FBX recording. 

Once executed, Orion will create an UDP server bound by default to port 3773 (can be changed with argument --command_port=).

A client applcaition can send commands over UDP packets to this Orion server as follows:

start or stop – this is to start and stop Orion solving; this is identical to pressing “Play”/”Stop” button on the UI.

rec_start or rec_stop – this is to start and stop recording of animation in the selected format, same function as the “Record XXX”/”Stop XXX” button.

The above commands are only available when Orion is executed in full UI mode (not a service mode).
