The Vicon Motion Capture technology available through the Visualization Studio is the same system used by major Hollywood productions like Avatar or Planet of the Apes to translate realistic motion onto digital characters. We offer an 8 camera system suitable for capturing the movement of people, robotics, and other objects. This technology is available through reservation, and involves scheduling a capturing session with the Duderstadt Center’s Motion Capture expert. After a session is complete, the resulting motion data is available in *.FBX, *.BVH or *.TRC formats.
To schedule a Vicon motion capture session, we will need a description of what you are looking to capture & the number of subjects involved. After a capture session, you will be responsible for cleaning the resulting data within the Shogun software (instruction will be provided).
Our 8 camera Vicon motion capture system is the same system used by major Hollywood productions suitable for capturing the full body movement of people, robotics, and other objects.
This full body motion tracking suit relies on accelerometers and gyroscopes to track movement.
