Action retains subtle nuances and detail that is increasingly important to realistic behavior and movement of an actor during performance capture, crucial to an engaging audience experience. New additions to the software include applying filtered mocap data directly to any CG model, further advanced retargeting and motion-capture capabilities during post-production, and a range of new tools enabling slim-lined processes for solving in Autodesk Maya. The latest Pole Vector constraint for rigging delivers the final crucial component.
Action’s real-time streaming, recording and retargeting facilities is now extended to the OptiTrack customer base.
Action 2.5 is free to existing users for immediate download from the IKinema site.
A full license to new customers is priced at $980. The software is available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows operating systems.
