“We have been working on facial tracking system for 10 years now even if we are newcomers to the motion capture industry. This new version of Performer is at the crossroad of our skills as a computer vision team and of all the feedbacks we had from talented artists and animators so far. We are very proud of this new version and hope it will be adopted by the industry as a reference for quality and powerful features“ said Gaspard Breton, CEO of Dynamixyz.
- Enhanced Tracking and Retargeting Capabilities: Benefiting from Dynamixyz’ strong academic research team, Performer’s face tracker and retargeter have risen to the next level: the tracker’s speed, accuracy and robustness have been further improved; The retargeter transfers animation with higher fidelity and stability, and can also take advantage of additional user input to deliver even better animation results. The software also goes multiplatform with Windows & Linux support.
- Single-View – Key Improvements: Beside the enhanced tracking quality, Performer “SV” has evolved into a more animator-friendly software. The re-designed GUI introduces a timeline for results visualization and easy frame correction. Animation results are now delivered as easily editable animation curves. Moreover, the software provides a more natural, seamless integration with 3D authoring tools thanks to the new Bridge technology.
- Multi-View – Key Features: With the Performer “MV” software, the Performer Suite now brings you multi-view face tracking. This enables simultaneous marker-based and markerless feature tracking, and the ability to export results as true 3D data. With usability as one of Dynamixyz’ primary concerns, this new solution features straightforward calibration process and multiview annotation tools.
