Most people are unaware of just how powerful our Studio software is and we hope that once people see it in action, they will start to see the beauty of working in it. The following video shows a quick and easy workflow of taking a Smartsuit Pro recording and cleaning it up using only a few of the Filters offered. If you’re unaware of what Filters are and how they are used, we recommend that you check out our blog Cleaning up Motion Data in Studio. They will teach you how to fully take advantage of our powerful software to get the most of our your Smartsuit Pro data!
One of our coolest features within Studio is being able to record video reference of your mocap actor while you’re recording a take. It’s a great way for you to see how the recording matches up with the actual reference and it can help out a lot during the cleanup process. See below on how to enable it.
Webcam or external video capturing device to reference
Optional: internal or external microphone
To enable Video Reference, click on the ‘Video Reference’ icon at the top right
Within the Video Reference window, you can select a camera and audio source by clicking both drop down menus
Once sources have been selected, you should see the video feed from the webcam
Whenever you record a take with the Smartsuit Pro, it will also record the footage from the webcam
Video Reference footage is saved within the same folder as your Takes
Whenever a take contains Video Reference data, a small ‘Play’ icon will show up to the right of the take name
