Creating Motion Capture Animation With A Kinect 2.0! | Nurbek Character Design


Christina Myrvold writes:

Did you know that you could use a Kinect 2.0 for basic motion capture? This week on POLYCOSM we did just that, plus texturing! Using the Kinect in combination with the Brekel Body v3 software, we were able to capture footage that can easily be imported into Blender and mapped to a rig with the help of the free "Rokoko Studio Live" add-on. We also used the add-on "Animation Layers" to tweak our animation.
