A:M can load BVH files.

 

I'd hope that any motion capture equipment would include the software to record your motion to those BVH files. Check that out.

THANK YOU!

 

One of the Capture Places Im looking at does Indeed use the BVH files. Im Glad to hear it!

 

I wonder if AM will come out with one of their own....(hmmm)

I think thats something they need to think about.

 

Thanks again!

You do have to do some preparation of your character to fit him to the imported motion.

 

There are some long threads archived on this forum about how and several people have had good success just using free BVH files from the web.

You might want to see if you can get a sample BVH file and try it in A:M.

Nice thing about BVH files... once you import them and set up a character with them, you can edit any channel.

 

So, say you have a nice running motion, but you want to change the way the head moves, or change the arm motion, you can do this.

 

You can also reduce the key frames in the channels so that the data is much lighter, but still gives a nice motion.

 

Try importing some of the free BVH files and playing with them yourself.

 

Cheers!

There is a 3rd party facial mo-cap solution available called ZIGNTRACK at the hash store for $99... I would'nt hold my breath for an entire body solution, there are too many other companies all over that- and that's really not Hash's deal...

 

HERE are some of my mocap samples:

Several companies are All over 3d Amimation Programs too...yet Hash is coming up Strong.

 

Its something that they Should consider. It would be nice to have a Motion Caption System that is Indeed affordable to General Public just like A.M.

 

The Big Companies are already Heated at Hash for this affordible program alone...

Imagine the possibilites of an affordible Motion Caption System to Creative Independent Artists like us!!!
