Within the realm of motion capture, the significance of hands and fingers often goes unrecognised despite their crucial role in emotive expression and storytelling. Renowned mocap studio Actor Capture, based in Fayetteville, Georgia, strategically opted for Rokoko Smartgloves, recognizing their high-quality and intricate finger movement capture and ease of use in a hybrid-optical mocap setup.

Specialising in optical and inertial-based motion capture, Actor Capture has been instrumental in notable projects like "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile" and "Suicide Squad," contributing significantly by capturing intricate body motions.

However, the game changed with the introduction of Rokoko gloves, particularly in capturing hand movements. The seamless integration of these gloves into their workflows streamlined calibration and offered exceptional finger tracking, fulfilling the team's synchronisation requirements seamlessly.


These gloves served as a linchpin in harmonising diverse data streams, ensuring time code alignment and uniformity across visual and body feeds, significantly enhancing the overall data quality. Moreover, they facilitated a smoother process for both seasoned professionals and newcomers, simplifying the achievement of complex motions.

Beyond technical enhancements, the impact of Rokoko gloves breathed new life into motion capture, reinvigorating the storytelling potential of hand movements. By bridging the gap between motion and emotion, these gloves injected vitality into previously static aspects of animation.

In the meticulous world of real-time animation and production, where each movement holds significance, Rokoko gloves emerged as an indispensable tool, enriching the artistry and elevating the level of realism in character animation.
