MoCap Solutions was founded in 2003 to meet one very specific need; to make tens of thousands of facial motion capture markers for the film The Polar Express. At the time, there were very few vendors making motion capture markers and certainly none that were capable of supplying that many markers in a very short period of time. Our solution back then was to buy 4mm plastic hemispheres from local craft stores (truth be told they were ‘eyeballs’ for toy dolls), place them on every flat surface we could find, and cover them with 3M tape. Then we hired everyone we knew to cut the tape around the ‘eyeballs’ by hand…until their fingers bled. That was the ‘production’ method for the length of filming.
That was then…
Today, MoCap Solutions is the premier manufacturer and supplier of ALL motion capture accessories. We have literally revolutionized the business of motion capture suits and markers. All of our products are made in the United States and held to the same dimensional tolerances and statistical process controls as automotive and aerospace components. We no longer deplete the supplies of local craft stores. We have completely re-imagined and re-designed motion capture markers and suits. We utilize state of the art 3D CAD software to produce our designs. We build aerospace quality injection molds to mold all of our components. We have developed automated processes to manufacture all of our components. This insures dimensional stability and repeatability to ensure the best possible tracking data. We have developed a proprietary fabric used in the construction of our state of the art motion capture suits.
But don’t take our word for it… Check out what some of our customers are doing.
All of our designs are our own and can be customized to fit your specific needs. We are motion capture industry professionals and can appreciate what it takes to make a shoot go perfectly. We are always looking for ways to improve our existing products or, better yet, to design the next great one.
