would like to see a walk cycle and other normal motions as this demo looks extreemly floaty/skiddy

Strange capture, very "floaty" as cress said. Last week I was looking for a video capture solution, and the cost for a similar system is $7000.

EDIT: 5-6 years ago there was a Russian program called Visual Marker in beta phase, then desapeared. Maybe they are the same guys.

can't say, not sure if there is any (compared to other mocap devices)...

i think it is supposed to be quite good, also you can upgrade it later on as i understand by adding more "lamps".

maybe check out their forum, users probably post some of the pitfalls over there...

I saw Optitrack demoed at Siggraph 2007.

Its pretty sweet and I recall that its cheap cause they build their own cameras using standard vidcam CCD's. A simpler, less expensive manufacture cost then the expensive cameras you get in something like a Vicon system. :hey:

But, hey, it worked really well from what they were demoing... I would consider this if I had to purchase a system for a small studio.

yes, i thought of that too...
found the reason was pretty simple...
it doesn't animate the foot/ toes bending
guess that's a big minus, having to reanimate alot,

it doesn't come close to real motion capture i'm afraid,
but one can't beat the price of the cheapest version, $250.

however the "Complete" video motion capture version is $2000, that's 'almost' half way to Optitracks Foundation solution, $5000, which is way better.

still, for some simpler stuff the solution could be pretty good.

Hey Kev,
That system really impressed me considering how much cheaper it was then the closest competitor. I thought that was they funniest back and forth Ive had with anyone at siggraph . :)
