Raw data is not production ready!
Although our hardware and software applications can produce great mocap data, we strongly advise to perform some data cleanup. It is real time calculated. The user can spend some time cleaning up the data in the post-processing to make the motion smoother, foot steps more firm and make postures more natural.
AXIS SOFTWARE EDITING
Axis applications have built-in tools to clean up contact points and remove capture noise that can translate into jittery movement. Use smooth tools in Axis Neuron or use Data Processing in Axis Studio, to reduce unnecessary movements that can cause a nightmare for animators.
Our applications can export mocap data in popular formats such as FBX or BVH. A well known application that has powerful tools to cleanup mocap is recommended, like Motionbuilder. Import the mocap data into this software so you can go further into animation curve cleanup.
Not all characters are created equal! When you record your mocap takes, you are essentially capturing your body movements to a replicated avatar fitting your body size dimension. Sending this data over to your character may not always match 1:1 as the rotations are relative to your dimension. Retargeting is critical in ensuring the capture movements are matched as intended to a character with a different body dimension as recorded.
