Motion capture service Performit Live has officially launched in the United States, Canada and the UK with the aim of revolutionising motion capture by enabling directors to work remotely.
The technology uses a motion capture suit and real-time avatar technology to enable animators to remotely direct performers in a virtual world.
It is currently available as an iOS app, with the creators planning to release Android version later this year.
Initially developed for high-speed sports, Perfomit Live has spent over five years in development. As it can be used remotely, it significantly lowers both the carbon footprint and cost of motion capture, said the creators.
“Performit Live revolutionises motion capture, granting animators unparalleled access to talent and offering a greener approach to animation,” said Jon Dalzell, CEO and co-founder of Performit Live. “We are thrilled to empower animators with our innovative technology, allowing them to unleash their creativity like never before.”
James Banfield, head of entertainment and co-founder at Performit Live, added, “Our remote motion capture technology opens up endless creative possibilities. With Performit Live, creatives can collaborate with top-notch performers from anywhere, ensuring their artistic vision comes to life flawlessly.”
