Enabling exact space positional tracking for objects with MVN Animate 2020


About this webinar

Xsens motion capture system is boundary-pushing tech, giving you clean production-ready data from anywhere, both inside and outside the studio. 

Now, the new MVN Animate 2020 enables positional tracking for persons and objects. The new 3D Positional Aiding functionality is embedded within the MVN Animate engine, allowing to process exact positional data.

The Positional Aiding tracks positioning using on of the leading positional tracking technology, HTC VIVE lighthouses. The exact positional data from VIVE is then processed by MVN Animate and fused with body motion capture data to give you one clear picture. This new development unlocks new opportunities for studios – two or more people can be measured in a space at the exact same time, meaning groups of actors in a scene can be recorded with their relative positioning tracked.

This feature also enables object tracking. You can place sensors on objects within a space – such as an actor’s prop – and process the objects’ exact location in relation to an actor. When recording the body motion data of a group of people, animators can plot the position of the objects, contextualizing the motion and positional data within the environment.

In this webinar we will demonstrate the new 3D Positional Aiding feature and talk about the kinds of mocap scenarios that will greatly benefit from it.
