iPi Mocap Studio 2 trial hat nichts mit der Express Version zu tuhn, wie man anehmen würde. Die Trial Version zu Deutsch Test Version ist ein Vorleufer von einem Programm das bei Steam nicht aufgefürt ist. Die Express Version die man sich kaufen kann,( die die nur mit einer X Box Kammera Funktioniert ) ist auch auf der Trial Seite zu finden, lasst euch bitte davon nicht Vereppeln. Hier einmal die nicht aufgeführte Internet Seite

If you want to use two kinects you have to pay $595 every 3 months. You can get the $165 every 3 months but it only supports one kinect.. which is useless, might as well use the free breakel kinect or any other markless mocap software out tere.

The software is good works fine if use more than one kinect but for the money you are going to spend on this save up and just buy a real mocap system.

I would actually purchase it if you would actually own the software after you paid for it.

Also ich bin nicht überzeugt. In dem Trailer der über das Product gezeigt wird, wird gesagt das es mit 2 Kinect kameras funktioniert. Das spricht nur von der Trail version die nach dem Download bei mir schon abgelaufen war also konnte ich es nicht testen.
Jedenfalls habe ich mir dann die Express version gekauft. Als ich meine beiden Kinect kameras benutzte um eine animation aufzunehmen sagte mir das Programm "iPi Mocap Studio 2 Express version" das die Express lizens keine zwei Kinect kameras unterstützt und ich die von mir gedrehten videos nur unter beschränkungen importieren könne. Ja man sollte schon das klein gedruckte lesen. Unter der Express version wird erwähnt das diese version nur mit einem Kinect teil funktioniert. Nur die Trail version läuft angeblich mit zwei kameras, nur leider

- war die Trail version für mich nicht zu testen das sie schon nach der Installation abgelaufen ist und der iPi recorder keine Videos exportieren wollte ohne eine gültige Trail version oder einer vollversion.

Ich rate jedem sich vor dem "upgrade" auf die Express version alles genau durchzulesen. Mit einem Kinect sensor sind die ergebnisse leider nicht so gut wie ich erwartet hatte. Dreh-bewegungen "'töten" meist die Animation, gerade desswegen hatte ich mir die Software gekauft wegen dem einsatz einer zweiten Kinect kamera.
Das was man in der Express version bekommt habe ich schon bei anderen weit billigeren Kinect Motion Capturing tools gesehen. Ich finde es ist das geld nicht wert.

DON'T. Just don't waste your time with this program. Why? Read below.

Looked promising but turned out to be a letdown. I tried the program with 4 PlayStation Eyes, got evrything ready to go from recording space to clothes to lighting to capture area with exact calibration measures (like distances from ground) with less than 1cm of error, but then the program just fails when it tries to capture motion even after all that trouble.

-4 PlayStation Eyes with finetuned colorbalances, brightnesses and pretty much everything else: check.
-Colored clothes to help the program to recognize bodyparts: check. Tested with:
- blue jeans with black T-shirt and long sleeved shirt (seperately, duh)
- black jeans with white, blue and black shirts
- red pants with green long sleeved shirt, later with black T-shirt on top
-Calibrated capture area with almost EXACT layout of the cameras for a scene, including ground marks AND enough space to record in the first place: check.
-Lighting: check.

Precisely defined actor in the program to match the human actor: check.

Aaaand... ACTION!

What was the result for all that? Started from a T-pose but the program thought I was a dismangled mess like I moose that has been rammed over by a train. Foot up in the waist, arms spazzing out to who-knows where, EXTREMELY jittery even after "smoothing" the animations, unable to keep up with slowly turning around, always at least one limb trying to break free and the BS went on and on and on and on. At worst the program thought I was a ball hovering in midair!

The best result I got was me standing still. For 3 seconds. While jittering after smoothing the animation and fixing the limbs going the wrong directions manually. I then tried to export that to Source Filmmaker and Blender (both in their own format). In SFM the animation turned every characters I tried in to morbid messes and Blender couldn't even open the exported animation because this program is designed for an old version of Blender.

I could go on and on about the problems, but after trying to get this program to work for a couple of weeks now, I'm now giving up. I don't know what black magic people have been using to make this thing work, but I can say that it's, I repeat, NOT as fun and easy as you might think!

Migraine medication ahoy!

This piqued my interest in motion capture software. Take that Kinect you never use, plug it into your PC, and make a breakdancing medic!
