VOLUCAP FAQ

Why do we need volumetric video 2018-06-19T10:46:53+00:00

All new media require three-dimensional content. This content can not be created using traditional methods. For this volumetric recordings are necessary

What software can be used? 2018-06-19T10:50:41+00:00

We support the common industry standards and export obj sequences or alembic caches. This data can be used in all popular games engines and 3D tools

What file type do you export once rendered? 2018-06-19T10:50:24+00:00

We support the common industry standards and export obj sequences or alembic caches. As video textures mp4, jpeg or png sequences are created. Depending on the intended use (VR, mobile, MR, film), the data resolutions during export are reduced to ensure maximum quality.

What crew are provided with the studio hire 2018-06-19T10:50:00+00:00

Studio Manager, Technical Director, Light Coordinator, Studio Coordinator.

What Cameras and lenses are used? 2018-06-19T10:48:48+00:00

20MP global shutter cameras with 12 Bit of raw recording. Lenses can be changed to specific requirements.

What are the limitations? 2018-06-19T10:48:08+00:00

Currently we are able to reproduce the performance as it was recorded. In the near future, however, it will be possible to change the performance to generate a higher level of interaction and new movements.

What are the applications? 2018-06-19T10:46:10+00:00

We are able to place filmed subject into any AR, MR, VR, 360, or 2D video/Web application on a wide range of devices, like phones, holographic headsets and Windows Mixed Reality immersive headsets.

Is it possible to shoot static objects like real props? 2018-06-19T10:47:32+00:00

Yes, we are also able to capture static objects and single body poses.

Is it possible to shoot big subjects like elephants? 2018-06-19T10:48:25+00:00

Our system has been developed in a modular way and is therefore also suitable for taking larger objects. The base system is designed to accommodate objects of 3×3 meters, but we are able to extend the base system and place it in a free setup in the neighboring studio. Thus, we have the opportunity to film even larger objects.

How much data is created during recording? 2018-06-19T10:49:16+00:00

We create 2 terabytes per minute as we film in ultra high-resolution 12-bit color space.

How does the review process work? 2018-06-19T10:49:39+00:00

During the recording, you can watch the actor in ultra high definition live from almost every angle. Takes can be stopped directly and restarted without interruption. We can take as many takes as it takes to have the perfect performance captured.

How do you create a hologram? 2018-06-19T10:47:14+00:00

We capture the actors on our stage from all angles. Intelligent software algorithms then use these recordings to create textured and animated 3D surfaces that can then be used in any given environment.

Can we re-frame the actor? 2018-06-19T10:47:50+00:00

Absolutely. The recorded figures can be placed anywhere and can be used from any angle in any environment.
