Frankfurt, Oct 15, 2015 – with nearly 15 years’ experience in motion capture, animations and in-engine cutscenes, the Germany based studio is celebrating this landmark by adding a brand new OptiTrack system boasting a total of 68 cameras.
Alongside with their Vicon System, metricminds has acquired a tool set that not only will allow the state of the art studio to do outdoor capturing as well as recording up to 12 actors with props.
SportRadar, a Swiss based expert in sports data and digital content, is metricminds’ first client to use their brand new technology, by hiring the Frankfurt studio to capture complex soccer plays. The studio set up a gigantic capture volume with a 25m diameter at a temporary location.
“The new system enables us to go further than ever before by making our capture volumes larger. The decision to keep the Vicon system allows us to do uncomplicated remote setups and to capture in two locations at the same time.” Philip Weiss, managing partner, metricminds
