The DI4D HMC Service provides a full on-location facial performance capture service, in which we provide and operate one or more DI4D HMC Systems at the client’s selected location. The HMCs can be synchronized with “house” time code allowing them to shoot in synchronisation with clients’ optical motion capture systems.
Reference video is provided to the client after the shoot, and the client then makes selects based on time code. Each select must have a minimum duration of 1 second and contain at least one neutral expression frame.
The client also supplies their own base mesh with their required topology and UV layout (subject to acceptance). This base mesh is often derived from a separate high resolution static 3D scan of the subject acquired by the client.
We then use DI4D software to process the selected segments and track the client’s base mesh through them. The resulting data is supplied as a vertex cache for each selected segment.
Our DI4D HMC System enables you to capture high quality facial performances with similar fidelity to our DI4D PRO System, but with the freedom of movement and convenience of untethered capture.
