We want to get a jump on the metaverse. No, not the crappy Facebook version:
We want to go into the world of UnrealEngine and living in photo-realistic metaverse. Kinda like Xanadu:
Frankly, he is the reason we're diving in so deep.
Here's where our research has started so far:
https://www.rokoko.com/ - SmartSuit Pro II - A full package for $4000 or so. This is for mass appeal... however, there are products that are more pro, like:
https://www.xsens.com/motion-capture - MVN - Body suit (you have to email them for price, but it looks like the full setup is around $10,000) and you'll want to get the gloves as well:
https://www.manus-meta.com/xsens-gloves - Xsense Gloves from Manus. The gloves are $4000.
Obviously we'll be importing our video right into Unreal Engine and they have lots of libraries and objects and help that we can use to get started: https://www.unrealengine.com/
Really cool METAHUMAN to import life-like faces - https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/metahuman-creator?sessionInvalidated=true
From here all we needed was a helmet, which now there are options to buy for under $700: https://neuronmocap.com/content/product/perception-neuron-face-mocap-helmet
We've found a couple of nice resources that help out DIY motion-capture people like: https://mocappys.com/
It seems like the price to get into the FULL motion capture world at Xanadu's level will be around $6000 if you're choosing the Rokoko setup. The Xsens setup fully in will be around $12-14,000.
We will update on what route we take and big shoutout and thanks to Xanadu with the video that convinced me I need to do this:
