New motion capture software promises “markerless facial performance capture”.
French company Dynamixyz has recently announced that it will be coming out with Performer 7, a markerless facial performance capture solution, that is essentially capable of four-dimensional motion capture.
CEO and co-founder Gaspard Breton stated that “We strongly believe in markerless facial motion capture as it is the only technology able to capture the so many subtle movements of the face accurately and for every region including inner lips contour, wrinkles, skin color changes, eye movements… With that new release, Performer is now a 2 year-old product which has proven its accuracy and efficiency.”
Breton states that more information will be revealed on July 21st to 25th at Siggraph 2013. There are apparently no risks involved as Breton states that that Performer 7 will be “using a HMC with a 3D sensor operating at very close range and safe for the eyes. This new technology integrates easily in Performer’s workflow and will deliver very high quality data.”
Other new features involved include monitoring in console mode, improvements in relation to background tasks and the GUI. Interested developers can head here for evaluating the new release.
