(Los Angeles, CA--July 29, 2019) OptiTrack today announced that it will debut its brand new skeletal solver at SIGGRAPH 2019, bringing artifact-free, real-time character animation to its optical motion capture systems. The solver will be demonstrated in OptiTrack’s SIGGRAPH booth #1341, with OptiTrack Prime cameras tracking performers in the volume.

“For 20 years content producers have been asking for final-shot caliber visuals in real-time so that stage teams can converge quickly on the director’s vision and allow filmmakers to produce higher quality imagery on shorter timelines and at lower costs. The industry has been inching closer to this with new advancements, and with our new skeletal solver, OptiTrack has delivered in a big way; it provides bulletproof real-time character animation, even under heavy occlusion, which is exactly what is needed for today’s real time production,” said OptiTrack CSO Brian Nilles.

Key features of OptiTrack skeletal solver include:
  • Stunningly accurate human movement tracking in real-time
  • Major advances in solve quality and artifact-free streaming of character data
  • Compatible with any OptiTrack system, including those used for Live Action camera tracking, virtual camera tracking and virtual reality
  • Supports industry standard tools, including Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, Unity Technologies’ Unity real-time platform, and Autodesk MotionBuilder
  • Extremely low latency

Additionally, OptiTrack will highlight the perfect complement to its new skeletal solver: an equally high performing finger tracking solution created in partnership with Manus VR.

Embedded with OptiTrack’s signature pulse Active technology, Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), and bend sensors, the gloves deliver accurate, continuous finger tracking data in real-time that is fully compatible with existing character animation and VR pipelines, when used with OptiTrack systems. The combination of the finger tracking solution and final shot quality full body motion capture provides content creators with exactly the tools for which they’ve been asking.

Visit OptiTrack’s booth #1341 during SIGGRAPH 2019 exhibition hours July 30-August 1 at the Los Angeles Convention Center to see the latest tracking technology in action.
