Note: Depth sensors provide body tracking data based on embedded tracking algorithms. The accuracy of such tracking is rather low and far below requirements of professional-level motion capture solutions. Tracking provided by iPi Mocap Studio is based on iPi Soft's algorithms and do not use tracking data from sensors. However, sensor's tracking can be effectively used to improve workflow.

We record and use tracking data from Kinect 2 sensors. The data are used for:

  • Detecting number of actors
  • Detecting actor heights
  • Detecting T-Poses and creation of takes
  • Setting initial pose for detected T-poses
  • Setting inital pose for first frame of Region-of-Interest
  • Warning on presense of people in sensor view during background recording
