Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Virtual cameras and virtual production techniques are an indispensable tool in blockbuster filmmaking but due to their integration into commercial motion-capture solutions, they are currently out-of-reach to low-budget and amateur users. We examine the potential of a low budget high-accuracy solution to create a simple motion capture system using controller hardware designed for video games. With this as a basis, a functional virtual camera system was developed which has proven usable and robust for commercial testing.
