About the Motion Capture Studio
The Still Picture & Motion Capture Studio is equipped with an OptiTrack mo-cap system and a retractable 12′ wide seamless background holder. The studio allows for a range of digital production including virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, video game design, digital animation, dynamic projection mapping, data visualization, live performance, and photography. Photographic equipment includes ProFoto strobes and base grip equipment, such as: c-stands, grip arms, umbrellas, and gray, white, and black seamless.
Please Note: Only students enrolled in certain classes will have access at this time. All students working in the space will have to go through an orientation session and a one-on-one training workshop as well as the completion of several homework assignments (with a technician) before they can book the studio. Pop-up studio kits are available for check-out to students through the ERC. The pop-up studio kit includes a background stand and the choice of a white or black backdrop. Students can additionally reserve a variety of continuous lights and full-frame DSLRs.
