Subject Depth in Unity / Lightcraft

image

Until now, we rendered the camera image on top of the Unity camera view, where the Previzion Lightcraft software has this neat feature where you can change the subject depth (distance to the camera).  This allows you to put virtual objects in front of the subject, or put the subject inside a virtual car (image courtesy of Lightcraft)

The same functionality is now implemented in our Unity project by writing a script that changes the scale of a textured quad so that it always fits the screen, at any depth.

New motion capture studio finally ready.

This week the new space for our motion capture studio finally is delivered. This semi-permanent setup allows for great flexibility, with chroma key green backdrop + flooring on demand, and space for Previzion fiducial markers in the ceiling. I spent all day yesterday setting up the OptiTrack motion capture camera systems, calibrating with ‘exceptional’ results. 

Today I can finally continue researching the motion capture <> Unity integration. Lacking a 24/7 assistant, I decided to create a ‘stickman’ out of scaffolding. This assistant shouldn’t get tired of the t-pose too soon…
