My Pants Do Vex Me

Rats! In my previous mocap session, my pants cuffs were apparently too long, which prevented iPi Desktop Motion Capture from tracking the feet accurately. Even though the toes in the Actor rig are properly pinned to the ground, the heels are swiveling slightly from side to side. That might not sound too bad except this swiveling is being passed up through nearly every joint in the body.

It looks like it’s back to the stage tomorrow to recapture this session. Fortunately, I have this performance well rehearsed by now and it should only take a half hour to recapture all of Act I.

Except for my wardrobe failure, the software appears to be tracking the performance with reasonable accuracy. I can’t wait to see this applied to the actual character rigs.

  1. I'm just wearing blue jeans, which is what's recommended by iPi Software. The issue with my pants is that the cuffs were a little too long and interfered with accurate tracking of the feet. Rolling the cuffs up a little should solve the problem. It's cheaper than buying new pants anyway.

    I think any dark colored pants will work fine as long as they are not too long or baggy.
