Exclamation MotionStar Position Tracking

Hello, I'm trying to capture my real-time movements in motionbuilder using motionStar. I am able to record a t-pose and attach the markers to the ankles, hip, and the head with successfull tracking (the head and hip are oriented). However, the wrists sensors are not attaching to the desinated markers. Once I go back to the live state everythings tracks correctly but the arms; I get no movement from the arms, the sensors are still floating mid-air and there are small white markers located on the wrist. Please help, I gone through the other post.

Can you attach a screenshot of what the actor looks like after snapping the actor to the markers? Sometimes if the the hip marker is not in the right location the actor's arms don't get mapped properly to the markers. Attached is an image showing where the hip marker should be.

With MotionStar all the markers should have orientation associated with them, not just the head and hip.

Thanks so much. I have issues with tracking in vizard;I have gone through avaiable demos. I'm getting an error message concerning the module stating. ImportError: No module named (xxxx) or a No Attribute error; I'm using Ascension Motionstar. I'm not sure what the module is?
