    Latest iPi Studio records from four Kinects or 16 PS3 Eye cameras!

    Just released this morning, the latest iPi Mocap Studio now supports four Kinect sensors or 16 color PS3 Eye cameras. That's amazing! Up to three actors too (with nine or more cameras.)

    I was just getting used to recording with 3 synchronized Kinect sensors. Sigh! Now I'm gonna need:

    1. A new computer.
    2. Another sensor.
    3. A bigger house.

    Here's the release notes:

    I haven't used this release yet but will be playing around with it over the weekend. I still have an older XBox Kinect that I can try to use as the fourth sensor. I'm not sure my current computer can handle four sensors but Mocap Studio allows you to use multiple computers now.

    They just posted this video:



    The three actor capture actually looks pretty good. Hard to tell how many PS3 Eye cameras are in the scene but from the spacing of the virtual cameras, I'm guessing it's the full 16. That's really cool but it's also getting too complicated for my available space.

    I've been curious about that. Keep us posted.

    I hope to show some freelance work I did last year using the iPi system with dual and triple Kinect. Nothing super spectacular but it was fun and the system certainly saved me a ton of time.

    Yeah.

    But I hope this discussion doesn't degenerate into another anti-rental rant. There are already plenty of threads in these forums for that. I'm really only interesting in discussing the technology and how to use it for creative works, especially with Lightwave.
