  • Then follow the on screen instructions.

  • Once you have captured your animation, you can rename or trim it by pressing the EDIT button

  • To send it to another computer press the SHARE button.

  • You can open a project and apply the new animation onto a Designer Character.

  • You can record MoCaps with or without a tripod.  Tripod will generally yield better results.

  • If your subject is moving through an environment you can follow them while recording their motion.

  • You can record a MoCap of a person appearing in a video.  Tripod is highly recommended in this case.

  • Clothes should not be too loose or baggy.

  • The lighting should not be too dark.

  • You do not need a special background like a green screen.

Subject should be fully within the frame for the entire move.

  • Body MoCaps work with Designer Characters only.

  • Currently Body MoCaps do not cross blend with other animations.

  • Also currently posing is not supported with Body MoCaps. 

Sharing Body MoCaps to non-iOS devices is possible by sending the project that contains the motion captures from your iOS device to your Mac or Windows computers. This will also work with ShotPro S.
