Performance capture solution
The Kostilam is software for performance capture that does not require any specialized hardware or studio environment. The software allows capturing human movement using off-the-shelf cameras. The resulting animation can be used for pre-visualization, filmmaking, or video game development. The software is freely available for non-commercial use. For further information and inquiries about licensing for commercial use, please contact us.
First, the input videos have to be rectified to remove lens distortion. Furthermore all the videos needs to be synchronized to establish frame correspondences.
The software estimates the position and orientation of all cameras in the scene from a calibration sequence with a moving point light.
Besides the videos the input to our sofware is a rigged mesh of a person being captured. There is a tool for semi-automatic skinning of this mesh.
Finally, character movement is tracked throughout the video sequence and the resulting animation is exported into FBX format.
