Automated 2D Motion Capture To Puppet Position Test

Posted on Wednesday, 1 June 2011

I have setup my own test system of using tracking data to drive Puppet Tool mesh Pins. I know this has probably been tried before, but the difference is I’ve worked out a method to drive the Puppet tool positions without having to create a Null Object for each Pin. I use a single target_null.

My setup works great and is quick to configure for another rig. The only problem I’m having is the tracking data, I am using the standard tracker and the tracking fails a lot. (Any advice on a tested optimal setup for the tracking is welcome!)

I use some colored attached markers for my setup. This is my first attempt at doing motion capture though, I will need to improve the tracking results, then the system setup will be perfect.
