Our story

Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, and with teams located in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Athens, our vision at Rokoko is to give all creative teams access to quick, non-intrusive and intuitive animation tools.

After founding our company in 2014, we immediately embarked on designing and producing our current flagship product, the Smartsuit Pro, an inertial motion capture suit that has now been shipped to more than 100 countries. The product was designed to make professional motion capture accessible to all creators. Today, the many thousands of users across a wide variety of skill-levels and application cases, from Animation & VFX, to Game Development to Education, attest to that goal having been achieved.

After the Smartsuit Pro, we launched both our Smartgloves for finger tracking and our Face Capture solution, becoming the first ones in the industry to offer an integrated and real-time Full Performance Capture solution. With Rokoko Vision, we enlarged our capture tools portfolio to the masses thanks to innovative proprietary camera-based motion capture technology, directly in the browser.

On top of that, we have also released several capture tool add-ons, like the Coil Pro (a markerless absolute position tracking device), the Headrig (a lightweight rig for iPhone-based facial mocap) and the Motion Library (the world’s largest marketplace of high-quality motion assets).

Lastly, we're constantly expanding the software suite behind all this magic, Rokoko Studio, with new and exciting animation features. This powerful motion editing tool will increasingly become a one-stop-shop for all character animation work, regardless of what software or hardware tool you decide to pair it with.

All our mocap and animation products are aimed at making access to creating, editing, and collaborating with professional 3D character animation quick, intuitive and accessible anywhere. As a result, one-man army indie creators as well as some of the biggest animation production companies in the world all choose Rokoko’s tools for their animation pipelines. We couldn't be prouder and we can't wait to keep building new tools and perfecting them!

Our vision

Our vision is to crush the barriers of animation and interactive storytelling. We imagine a world where Rokoko enables anyone and everyone to breathe life into their creative ideas, where imagination is unshackled from technical complexities and the steep learning curves of animation.

"A great creative process is free of constraints and without a constant worrying about budgets, technical expertise, and practicalities. We believe in a non-linear workflow where you can get the right idea at any moment during a creative process, and our tools should be there and ready for you."
