Turn Your XboxOne into a Motion Capture Device!

Mocap release_2

Reallusion, leading edge software developer providing cinematic animation tools for PC, Mac and mobile platforms has announced the new Mocap Plug-in for Mocap Plug-in for Kinect for XboxOne, for use with the iClone 6 Pro software.

In 2012 Reallusion became the first mobile motion capture solution provider when they launched the Kinect mocap plug-in for the Xbox 360. With the new high definition Kinect motion capturing tool, users can now use their own bodies to more accurately control virtual actors in real time without having to rent an entire mocap studio or even wear a markered jump suit.

3 New Features for Kinect Mocap Plug-in:

• The Kinect Mocap Plug-in for Xbox One with iClone 6 Pro, is compatible with the new Kinect for Xbox One camera sensor. New additions to the sensor include: Time of Flight sensor that offers unparallel tracking accuracy; 1080p camera with increased field of view that requires less room to operate and a higher light sensitivity.

• Additional trackable skeleton joints enhances neck up/down, upper torso, wrist and knee rotation, and squat movements.

• Improved 3D visualization for better floor and feet contact, including the ability to save floor calibration.

Mocap release_1Main Features:

Floor Detection & Alignment New 3D floor alignment and floor adjustment function helps keep every foot step on the same surface elevation, preventing unnatural floating or sinking foot motion when moving about.

Near Mode & Wider Angle Lens Now you can capture your motions closer to the camera even when sitting in front of the desk. Thanks to the near mode, your motion data can be captured as close as 50cm to the sensor with full accuracy and precision.

Chest Turn, Head/Neck Rotation We’ve added the option of head rotation tracking, which motion captures rotation around the X-axis and Z-axis. This means that you can now make characters nod in agreement, turn their heads to the side, or look from left to right.

Half-body Capture & Mask With this Kinect for Xbox One mocap plug-in you are able to choose between “full-body” or “upper body” to perform half-body captures while in a seated position. On the other hand, you can also mask out specific body parts to combine with already existing motions, or add knee rotation constraints for a more stable motion capture.

Head & Knee Movement The Microsoft Kinect SDK allows end point motion capture, allowing your head and knee movements to be recognized for more natural-looking animations.

Remote Body Commands No need to walk back to your computer to start or stop recording. Now you can use simple gestures to send preview and record commands to the motion capture device.

Quick Switch Rapidly switch between multiple mocap performers captured on camera without having to re-target each time. Do this by directly right-clicking on the tracked body.

Mirror Capture Check on the “Mirror” option to flip your character’s movement from one side to the other.

Motion Smoother Remove annoying motion jitters with the new enhanced motion smoother option.

The Mocap Plug-in for Kinect Xbox One is now available for 79.99 GBP
