Take control
of your animation project

Qualisys is proud to have taken a serious step into Entertainment Industry with our VFX and Animation solutions. With over 30 years of experience in motion capture within human biomechanics, we brought our mocap expertise to the entertainment sector to offer the best conditions for a smooth workflow for film, gaming and live broadcasting currently available.

Our solutions in animation allow for real-time solving of multiple characters, both human and animal, streamed straight into the game engine or animation software of your choice packages this with our self-developed mocap suits, active tracking devices for LBVR, and seamless integration with 3rd party animation and virtual production tools.

Couple this with the highest-performing motion capture camera platform on the market and its weatherproof capabilities, the Qualisys system will always operate where and when you need it to.

 

You set the framework for your projects, not the equipment.

Take control.

Capturing animals in the same way as humans can introduce extra challenges, that is, unless you use a Qualisys motion capture system.

"With Qualisys' advanced technology, you can push your animations to the next level and bring more magic into the art of animating characters."

“I’m incredibly lucky to be part of these productions! As a freelance actor, I notice differences performing in front of each 3D system. With Qualisys, i feel like everything runs so smoothly and their suits are honestly one of the more comfortable mocap suits I’ve worked in!”

Real-time streaming to your preferred animation software

QTM Connect for MotionBuilder

The Qualisys Skeleton Device handles streaming of skeleton segment transforms (6DOF) from QTM. Skeleton data is automatically characterized, to easily connect a streamed skeleton to a rigged character.

QTM Connect for Unity

Animating characters is straight-forward with auto mapping between Unity’s Mecanim human bones and QTM segments. Just add the skeleton script, set the actor name of the QTM skeleton and press play.

QTM Connect for Unreal

Add 3D marker positions to your actor components in Unreal Engine, or let rigid body position and orientation manipulate them. Mapping skeletons to a mesh is handled by Unreal Engine’s LiveLink plugin.

QTM Connect for Maya

Receive your mocap data as joints or locators and animate characters or other types of objects. Since our joint naming convention works seamlessly with HumanIK, customization is extremely quick.

iClone Motion LIVE

Reallusion uses the Qualisys open-source SDK to integrate real-time skeleton streaming from Qualisys Track Manager. The skeleton data is automatically characterized to directly connect a streamed skeleton to any royalty-free, iClone or Character Creator 3 pre-rigged avatar.
