HoloCap is a software tool for capturing volumetric video, more commonly known as “Holograms” using a low cost depth camera. We call these files “HoloCaps”, and a HoloCap file may contain several dynamic 3D meshes, textures and audio-data. HoloCap Studio is our software to pre-record volumetric video and HoloCap Live is our software for real-time volumetric video. HoloCap recordings can be imported and played in Unity by using the HoloCap Player plugin. This plugin is currently a Windows 64 bit plugin only, however, plugins for other systems (i.e. mobile VR/AR) are being developed. The system is designed for simplicity; No special background (i.e green-screen), advanced lightning or calibration is required. The holograms are instantly viewable in VR and no post-production is necessary. HoloCap represents one of the easiest, fastest, highest quality and most affordable tools for volumetric video content creation.

HoloCap HALO now in Beta
HoloCap HALO is a new app from HoloCap for bringing real people into VR and AR. With HoloCap HALO, volumetric video can be created in real-time as depth-encoded RGBD video stored in ordinary video-formats like mp4. HALO is intended to be used together with your favorite video capture/streaming software, like Open BroadCaster Software (OBS).
HALO comes in three flavours, Basic for KinectV2 or Azure, and a Pro version for Azure Kinect only. In the basic version, the resolution is limited to the resolution of the depth sensor, while Pro supports much higher resolutions.
The HALO player for Unity supports pc, android, ios, hololens and other.
