Can the object move while it is being measured?

Yes, under certain circumstances. The object can move during the measurement as long as it moves as a rigid body. That is, the entire object cannot undergo any deformation when it is moved. Sometimes, this feature of V-STARS can be used to simplify a measurement by moving the object relative to the camera, rather than moving the camera around the object. For, example if an object is mounted on a turntable, the camera can remain stationary and the object can be rotated to several positions with the turntable. Of course, the object must be rigid enough to maintain its shape when being rotated.

If the object is moved, it is important that the Scale Bars be mounted so that they move with the object. If not, the scale measurement is corrupted, and can’t be used.
