Moscow-based iPi Soft has announced that iPi Motion Capture Version 2.0, the next version of its scalable line of markerless motion capture technology, will release this spring.
iPi Soft says Version 2.0 offers increased support for female characters, improved accuracy and workflow enhancements, and support for more motion sensor devices, such as ASUS Xtion and Kinect for Windows. It already supports equipment like PlayStation Eye cameras and webcams.
The software uses image processing and computer vision algorithms to recognize and track the human body. It then applies the digitally captured movement to a 3D character, and renders it as part of a video game or a computer-generated movie.
iPi Soft will make iPi Motion Capture Version 2.0 available with three different editions: Express, Basic, and Standard. The different versions offer varying features, as well as levels of motion complexity that they can track.
