Motion Capture Studio
Welcome to our Motion Capture Stage. In our recently upgraded Studio we have 24 Vantage and Vero cameras which provide accurate data from our infra-red equipped suits and facial recognition hardware. Reference cameras from Blackmagic provide HD footage, while mobile camera tech films motion capture in real-time. Used by students from arts, film, media, Games and VFX courses, the Studio is stacked with Vicon Shogun, Unreal Engine and Motion Builder software.
