Simple webcam mocap: ipi soft

And all you need is a few cheap webcams (3 or 4) and a SM 4.0 compatible graphics card (which I lack http://forum.freegamedev.net/images/smilies/icon_sad.png otherwise I would test it right now).

It’s available for 30days free trial, after that it is quite expensive though http://forum.freegamedev.net/images/smilies/icon_sad.png

But something like that would really speed up and improve the quality of humanoid animations.

If there was just a FOSS blender plugin like this dreams of the possibilities

I wouldn’t mind giving this a go. I have a web cam, a “camera” that takes moving images, and also a few friends who can lend me their camera. Thanks for the link.

Oh yes - I have access to 3 different computers . . . so I can in theory get ninety days of trial.

1.400 dollars is quite expensive.

Is this fake? Just a bad feeling.

Actually compared to other mocap solutions it is incredibly cheap… but well yes it is expensive :frowning:

Concerning it being fake or not… well I can’t test it (no SM4.0 GPU right now), but it’s a free download so that should be testable quite quickly :wink:
Also their forum is already quite full with users, seemingly using the software successfully.

And to be honest I don’t see why it shouldn’t work… it seems to be rather computational intensive though, that’s why it probably wasn’t done before. It’s also not real-time like most other mocap solutions.
