Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is Xsens used for?
Xsens motion capture systems are valuable for creating cutting-edge 3D Character Animation in movies and games. Xsens is the go-to solution for professionals working in gaming, film, animation, TV broadcasting, and live entertainment.
How does Xsens motion capture work?
Xsens motion capture technology utilizes a system of advanced sensors attached to a suit worn by the actor. These sensors capture the actor’s movements in real-time, translating them into precise digital data. This data is then used to animate characters and objects in 3D environments.
What does a motion capture suit do?
A motion capture suit (or mocap suit) captures the movement of a performer’s body and turns their recorded motion into data with the help of software.
What are motion capture suits made of?
Motion capture suits are a type of clothing typically made out of full-body lycra suits, also known as elastane, which is a highly elastic synthetic fiber. Full-body lycra suits make it easier for people to perform unobstructed movements.
What is the Xsens MVN Link suit?
The Xsens MVN Link is a skin-tight lycra suit equipped with 17 sensors that are attached to parts of the performer’s body, such as their knee, leg, foot, upper arm, or even head. It comes in 6 sizes to suit different body dimensions and users.
With a range of 150 meters and 10 hours of battery life, the Xsens MVN Link suit makes it possible to capture high-impact, dynamic movement data from multiple subjects — without needing to use a cable or wire to connect the different technologies. This one suit is the hardware needed to capture production-ready data.
How does the Xsens suit work?
As the person moves in the Xsens MVN Link suit, the sensors collect real-time movement data from their performance. This data is then wirelessly transmitted to a computer, where specialized software processes the sensor information and creates a detailed digital representation of the performer’s movements.
What is Xsens MVN Animate software?
Xsens MVN Animate is the motion capture software needed to create, record, monitor, and review the collected motion data for entertainment applications. MVN Animate Pro is the ideal tool for game developers and animators due to its high performance.
Do I need a pro license for MVN Animate?
Having a pro license for MVN software guarantees high performance from your motion capture system and makes all the difference to your sensor data. MVN Animate Pro has full GNSS support, network sync, remote on-body recording, and more features that offer flexibility. Luckily, our Xsens rental services come with the option to get your hands on an MVN Animate Pro license.
Where can the Xsens MVN system be used?
Practically anywhere! The Xsens motion capture system is portable, reliable, and easy to use, which allows you to shoot in diverse locations without compromising the quality of motion capture data.
