New feature integrates motion capture software functionality into third party animation and biomechanical analysis production workflows.
MOSCOW, RUSSIA – iPi Soft, LLC, developers of the iPi Motion Capture line of markerless motion capture technology, announced the availability of iPi Automation Add-On. The new Automation Add-On tool allows third party software developers to integrate motion capture tracking of human body motions using the company’s iPi Recorder and iPi Mocap Studio software applications.
The new tool also enables the automation of repeated tasks and custom workflows, a particular benefit for high-end animation production in entertainment; and for tracking and visualization of motion capture data for medical, sports analysis and movement science applications.
“We’re pleased to offer third party software developers, and technically advanced users, this new means of accessing the benefits of iPi Motion Capture,“ commented Michael Nikonov, iPi Soft’s Chief Technology Architect. “The new Automation Add-on capabilities are designed to streamline integration of iPi Motion Capture into third party workflows for improved ability to send commands and get results of complex motion capture data. This is also a useful and cost effective solution for high-end visual effects and animation studios who need to automate frequently repeated sequences of operations and for healthcare.”
The Automation Add-On, which allows users to control iPi Recorder and iPi Mocap Studio via external application by sending JSON commands via Windows dll, is currently in beta testing with Bethel, DE-based biomechanical software development company Anatomical Engineering for application use in the physical therapy and rehabilitation industry.
The iPi Automation Add-On is activated using iPi Mocap Studio and requires a separate license key. Pricing for a one-year license is $495. More information can be found here.
