OptiTrack Simplifies Motion Capture with Release of Motive Software
CORVALLIS, Oregon—March 5, 2013—Motion capture provider OptiTrack today announced the launch of Motive, a unified software platform designed to eliminate the complexities historically associated with motion capture workflows. Motive delivers cleaner motion data, enables larger capture volumes and can be tailored to meet a full range of production studio and reseARCh facility needs. With an easy-to-navigate interface, Motive provides a high-performance solution for data management and processing as well as skeleton solving. When customized with the Motive Body Module add-on, the system delivers simultaneous full body and finger tracking, even in very large capture areas.
“We’ve always taken a position that motion capture shouldn’t be so difficult, and it shouldn’t be so expensive,” said Jim Richardson, CEO of OptiTrack. “With the release of Motive, we’re making it easier than ever to integrate motion capture into facilities and productions of all sizes at very accessible price points. Coupled with OptiTrack’s cameras, the highest performers in the industry, we’ve set a new bar for performance in optical motion capture.”
“Robust motion capture is an essential part of the Autodesk virtual production pipeline and OptiTrack has completely upped their game with the Prime 41 cameras and Motive,” noted Bruno Sargeant, Autodesk Senior Product Manager.
Beta versions of Motive have been available to select OptiTrack customers and the software is already positively impacting their workflows.
“We chose OptiTrack for several reasons. The Prime 41 cameras outperformed their competition, and the Motive software suite is unparalleled,” explained Chuck Ghislandi, Motion & Animation Director of Game On Audio. “This combination of superior hardware and 64 bit software allowed us to design and build a very large capture Stage, and gave us the confidence to capture more actors for longer takes. The OptiTrack system is completely scalable so we know that we can continue to enhance our system to meet the growing expectations of next-gen games and films.”
