Powerful Motion Capture Tools for Everyone
MYCAP Studio 2012 has been designed from the ground up to be accessible to everyone. Its clean and intuitive user interface will allow you to get started quickly without worrying about all kinds of complex settings. From the initial camera calibration to actual motion capture, MYCAP Studio guides you through each step, giving suggestions along the way.
No-fuss Camera Calibration
MYCAP Studio's camera calibration process takes under a minute to complete. Just use the built-in snapshot tool to grab a few images of your calibration pattern, click calibrate and you're done! Once calibrated, you can add it to MYCAP Studio's calibration library so you won't have to calibrate the next time. Using multiple capture setups? No problem, you can switch instantly between different calibrations stored in your library! MYCAP Studio also corrects lens distortion so even cheap cameras and lenses can be used.
Automated Marker Detection and Tracking
Some motion capture systems require you to manually select every single marker by hand. With MYCAP Studio, there is no need to manually select markers. With a single click, MYCAP Studio intelligently selects and matches markers, irrespective of marker arrangement. You can manually set the detection parameters to facilitate almost any marker size and brightness. MYCAP Studio also includes tools for manual marker removal in case of false detections.
Unlike most motion capture systems, MYCAP Studio does not rely on expensive infrared cameras, special lighting setups, pre-defined templates for marker placement or marker color coding. Inexpensive plain white markers can be used and you can place the markers in whatever way you choose. Motion capture is not limited to facial or body motion alone. With MYCAP Studio you can even capture the movement of deforming surfaces such as cloth.
Global Motion Stabilization
MYCAP Studio 2012 Professional supports global motion stabilization. Global motion stabilization effectively eliminates unwanted motion disturbances from your motion capture. As an example, in facial motion capture it is sometimes only the motion of the facial muscles that must be captured and not the movement of the head. Attaching the camera to the head is one solution, however this is not always practical. By using three additional reference markers on the head, MYCAP Studio can counteract this motion.
The integrated Motion Analyzer is a great tool for viewing and post-processing 3D motion data before exporting it to your primary application. The Motion Analyzer includes adjustable low-pass filters as well as a second-order Kalman filter. These filters provide effective methods of noise reduction in case of noisy camera sensors or flickering light sources.
MYCAP Studio includes a media browser, which gives you quick and easy access to video files stored on your computer. You can browse media thumbnails, view media properties and add common locations to your favorites panel, saving you time when working with multiple file locations.
