4D Facial Motion Capture On-Location - DI4D PRO Service

HIGH DEFINITION 4D FACIAL MOTION CAPTURE SERVICE

The DI4D PRO Service provides a full on-location facial performance capture service, in which we provide and operate a DI4D PRO System at the client’s selected location.

The DI4D PRO System captures sequences of high resolution, colour 3D facial performance data using digital video cameras. DI4D PRO Systems use only standard video lighting and do not require any markers, make-up or structured light projection.

Capture rate is 50 or 60 fps (48 fps by arrangement). System setup requires approx. three hours and break down approx. 90 minutes. Recent shoots have been carried out on location in London, Budapest, Los Angeles and Montreal.

 

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, optionally with per-frame texture and detail maps, for each selected segment.

We have created some DI4D PRO System sample data which is available for you to download - this is the same data that was used to create this movie.

The data is comprised of a mesh file, an animation file and texture maps in various formats.
