Made with iClone & Perception Neuron
Film Production - Schirkoa
"I find iClone quite handy, as many motions in my film Schirkoa were recorded with the mocap suit."

TV Commercial - Findus Sofficini
"Carletto Sofficini is our first production with iClone and Perception Neuron. We’re very satisfied with the results, and see real-time production as exciting alternative method for 3D animations"

"Not that long ago the only filmmaker who got to do this was James Cameron when he made Avatar!"

A fully modularized design fits everything in a compact, bag-padded box that takes less than 10 minutes to wear and setup. It supports both USB cable and WIFI wireless configurations, with an effective capture range of up to 250 meters outside.
Hand gesture and finger movements are an integral part of the entire body performance, making the Perception Neuron system highly effective as animators do not need to employ additional systems for finger tracking. Noitom Perception Neuron is the only mocap system that is able to live stream highly detailed hands and finger movements, giving your whole animation smooth and unconstrained results.
Real-time live capture has been well adopted by TV networks, tradeshows, and stage performances, as it brings a high level of virtual actor and audience interaction. By combing Perception Neuron and iClone, you can now turn a 3D character into a live virtual actor, allowing you to instantly impress any target audience.
For a successful capture, your actors should act according to the 3D character’s gender and body scale. Thanks to iClone, actors will have instant visual feedback on how the final character behaves everytime. You can also set up the environment which can guide your actor on how to avoid collision, and physical interaction with props.
iClone users can choose to live stream mocap data directly from the AXIS Neuron Software, or stream from a pre-recorded BVH motion file. This gives the flexibility of starting and stopping motion capture anytime, getting the best mocap results from several recordings.
The iClone Mocap Plug-in allows you to directly stream motions from the AXIS Neuron software into iClone to save as an iClone iMotion File, allowing you to by-pass additional efforts to characterize the BVH mocap data for a specific 3D actor. Moreover, motions can also be retargeted to the characters with different body scales.
By targeting two characters from the same starting point, the instant dual-performance gives actors immediate productivity for complex interactive animations like communication, dancing, or fighting which would be extremely difficult and very time consuming via a post-motion editing method.
Designing unlimited 3D characters for real-time animation is now incredibly easy! With Character Creator (CC), you can create realistic-looking, stylized, or hybrid, animation-ready 3D characters. Unique character designs are created through the use of shape morph sliders, customizable high-resolution skin textures, and outfits with clothing containing your own fabric designs.
While motion capturing, actors tend to move a bit slower than in real-life. You can always make adjustments through the iClone Motion tools and Motion Curve Editor to easily adjust to the original speed and energy for high impact results.
If your original mocap is not exactly what you expected, then iClone can help as it provides you with a timeline-based Motion Layer Editor that can refine any selected joints to produce the motions you wish. You can also trim and loop mocap data, and smoothly blend motion clips together with advanced foot step alignment capabilities.
With the iClone mocap plug-in, I'm able to capture and render several motions in just a couple hours... Something that took me days or even weeks in the past.
