Optical Motion Capture
Facial Motion Capture by PhaseSpace
Facial motion capture is easily accomplished via an inexpensive option for the PhaseSpace optical motion capture system. Best accuracy is attained by using a special arrangement of 4 Impulse motion capture cameras. PhaseSpace active LED's are attached to the face and the markers are tracked at up to 480 frames per second at the full 12+ Megapixel resolution.
Software includes a plug-in to help facilitate facial mocap animation in MotionBuilder (which integrates well with most professional 3D modeling and animation programs).
PhaseSpace facial motion capture provides numerous advantages to advanced users as a facial animation system:
- No marker swapping
- No infrared or visible light shined towards the facee
- High frame rates (up to 480 frames per second at full resolution)
- Included software allows use of multipliers for adjusting and exaggerating tracked marker movement
