NaturalPoint Demonstrates ARENA Expression

During SIGGRAPH 2008, NaturalPoint is demonstrating its Facial Mocap product, Expression, designed to deliver high-fidelity facial motion-capture for the desktop. Facial expressions bring new depth and emotion to digital content, but capturing them has traditionally required complex setup, expensive equipment,and a dedicated team to generate. ARENA Expression introduces ease of setup matched with great fidelity and an affordable price, says a company representative. The company is announcing a package with six cameras, calibration tools, software, and markers for $4999. Export is available to popular C3D formats and real-time streaming to Softimage FaceRobot, Autodesk MotionBuilder 7.5, and DAZ 3D.
