Moments in time of Building a Motion Capture System

Over the past few days I have been assembling a 12 camera Optitrack Flex 13 Motion Capture System in the Schools new Green Screen Room. The first set of images below are a photography journey of this process of the first day working on this. The consisted of setting up the workstation, mounting the cameras, wiring them up and positioning them with respect to the capture volume. Have written more about the process at the following blog.

All the above images were form this past Thursdays work on the Motion Capture System, given that all the cameras were positioned all that was remaining was to calibrate the system and tidy up the cables, which I spent a good deal of this past morning and afternoon doing, as per the following images.

  1. This is an impressive Installation. Thanks for sharing but the provided link is not working. I hope to see soon more of the results of this motion capture. Do you use it for building animation?
