The Captury

Captury Live


Captury Live is a system for capturing human motion in real-time. It is a full system consisting of a PC, video cameras, network equipment and a calibration board.

  • Track motion at up to 120fps
  • Record videos at up to 240fps
  • Up to 24 cameras
  • Up to 3 persons

Real-time streaming into: * Unity * Unreal * Motion Builder * your application – using our custom network protocol
Or use a standard protocol: * VRPN * OSVR * OSC * ROS
Extend Captury Live with your own plugins.
Export: * Videos in the standard AVI format * Motion as FBX, BVH, CSV

Captury Studio


Captury Studio is the most versatile markerless motion capture solution available today. The entire development was focused on making performance capture a breeze. It is the result of several years of passionate research and development. It enables motion capture of humans and animals with unprecedented flexibility. No markers, no suits, no studio, no special hardware, just pure performance.

Captury Studio allows smooth integration with your pipeline: Import video formats: Image sequences, AVI and MPEG4 containers, MJPEG, MPEG1, H261, H264, VP8 and REDCODE codecs. Import 3DEqualizer / SynthEyes / PFTrack lens distortion parameters. Export results in BVH, FBX, and OBJ sequences.

We know that when working on a real set things go wrong. That’s why we have provided Studio with tools to fix things. We provide semi-automatic and automatic tools to … … compute lens distortion parameters and global camera calibration, … synchronize the different videos if you captured without a trigger signal, … perform color calibration to match the look of your witness cameras to the principal camera, … track the skeleton motion, … manually match-move – should all else fail, … post-process motion.

Captury Studio allows maximum flexibility during capture: Use any camera: Captury Studio can handle any combination of cameras running at different framerates and resolutions. You can import videos in various file formats. Capture anywhere: No specific background is necessary. Captury Studio can handle even dynamic scenes and changing illumination as long as sufficient color contrast between actors and background exists. Capture anything: Captury Studio provides a highly optimized human body model that can be scaled to the size of any actor. Animals, objects, or machines can be tracked by generating customized skeleton and model definitions.
