Motion capture (mocap) recordings are often fast and simple, but they need to be planned carefully.  One difficulty is that it is very tricky to record full body movements at the same time as recording subtle facial expressions or small finger movements. There could also be the problem of occlusion, where the subject moves in a way that occludes the markers, which of course means that the data for that particular marker is lost during the time it is occluded. Therefore it is very important to plan the recording well. Our mocap system is scalable in the sense that it is possible to use only a subset of cameras and move them closer to the person being recorded. That means it could be setup in the most favorable position for each recording. But this needs to be tested since there is a possibility that the cameras disturb each other if they are directed in the wrong way.

For safety reasons, do not look directly into the cameras.

The mocap studio is at LUX.

Guidelines for using the MoCap-studio during covid-19

General
No more than five people are allowed in the studio at the same time.
If the controllroom is used it can only be used by one person at the same time.
Before entering the studio make sure to wash your hands or use hand desinfectant.

Recording-computer
Clean the keyboard, mouse and table with disinfectant after recording. Note: Turn off the computer before cleaning.
Clean the calibration kit (both wand and L-cross) with disinfectant after recording.

Markers
We recommend that the subject of the recording apply the markers on their own.
After the recording remove the markers and the tape from each marker. Place the markers in the bowl at the marker table. Apply disinfectant to the markers and rotatet them in the bowl for a few seconds. Then put them on a paper on the table to dry. It takes at least 30 minutes before they can be used again.

Cameras
If it is necessary to move the cameras, make sure to clean the poles, tripods and camera mounts with disinfectant after the recording. However, NEVER put disinfectant on any of the cameras.
