Having had a lot of success with my mocap rig for creating Clear Skies 3, I wrote up exactly what I used, how I used it, and how I achieved the results I did.

It doesn't cover new aspects like the Playstation Eye camera and so forth, but if you're having difficulties with the mocap process, this guide gives you a workflow that gave repeatable successful results :)

Hi Ian,

Great tips! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience.

If anybody here hasn't seen Ian's Clear Skies yet, be sure to check it out!

Thanks for the very detailed guide. I'm using PS3 cameras in a full-circle config, but your tips still really helped, particularly the ridiculous but very effective outfit you described. Once I shouted down my actor's protests against prancing around in tight black pajamas and red socks with platitudes about suffering for one's craft, it really improved capture accuracy.

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to say a big Thank You for an excellent guide! Especially for a total newbie like yours truly.

Next task: how to convince my wife I need to turn our living room into a mocap studio... "Honey, where do we keep our stealth towels? Do we have any in pink?" :-)
