When you Put data to a Z-Raw-Data Segment, MotionDesigner will do the following:

Do nothing if you post less than 5 data points. MotionDesigner will tell you to put more data points.

Transform the data to give points that coincide with the points in the segment.

Numerically differentiate the data to create Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk values.

In the Data-Transfer Table:

You can use the Get Motion Data button or the Get Segment Data button to extract the new Position, Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk values.

You can use the Get List Data button to get the original data.
