Introducing: Captury Studio
We are very proud to announce the upcoming beta release of Captury Studio.
Captury Studio is a software suite for markerless performance capture in post-production, and is the result of several years of passionate research and development. It enables motion capture of humans and animals with unprecedented flexibility. No markers, no suits, no studio, no special hardware, just pure performance.
Captury Studio contains all tools necessary for a complete markerless motion capture workflow:
- Import, synchronize, and calibrate videos
- Create accurate actor-specific skeleton models
- Automatically track/filter motion of actors and props
- Export data into your favorite animation software.
While the workflow is as automatic as possible, Captury Studio also provides efficient tools for manual editing for difficult shots, including a character match-moving tool.
If you are interested in testing Captury Studio, stay tuned for the beta registration, which will be available soon.
The Captury develops state-of-the-art motion capture systems, that require neither markers, nor tight suits. Our systems work using standard video cameras and regular everyday apparel. Our technology allows tracking humans, props, and animals, using commodity video cameras.
In addition to traditional motion capture, our we develop technology that allows computing spatially and temporally coherent 3D geometry of the performaer for sequences. This allows us to re-render the scene from novel, virtual view-points to generate camera sweeps with freeze-frame effects using only few and inexpensive video cameras.
Our technology builds on pioneering research in the field of performance capture and free-viewpoint video conducted at the Graphics, Vision and Video Group at MPI Informatik in the last decade. The Captury is currently supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics BMWi via the program EXIST-Forschungstransfer.
