HoloCap Studio

HoloCap Studio is a software tool for pre-recording volumetric video files using a Kinect V2 depth sensor. We call these files “HoloCaps”, and this proprietary HoloCap format contains 3D meshes, textures and audio-data. 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.

 

Features:

  • Volumetric video capture of people

  • Hologram sound capture

  • Playback and editing of the captured sequences directly within the Unity Editor

  • Compatible with Kinect V2 (with PC adaptor). 

  • Low latency 30Hz capture rate while maintaining 90Hz framerate in VR

  • Export option: create obj sequences from your capture files.

  • Compatible with PC/Win10 PCVR and Unity 2018.3 and later. 

  • Hardware needed: Kinect V2 sensor with PC adaptor, VR ready PC, tripod.

 

HoloCap Studio creates hi quality volumetric video even in "out of studio" settings like a normal meeting room or office space.
