Hi,

Which is the best way to learn MOCAP? Any company has a training center?
Do you know something about salary of a MOCAP specialist?
And, which is the best MOCAP system in the market?

Thanx very much,

way to learn : internship at a studio or a job at one.

training centers : not really, unless you buy a system.

salary : varies a lot, depends on your experience, background, etc.

best system : this is another loaded question. I have used Giant and Vicon 8 and M series systems, as well as some exposure to MAC's software. all in all, I would have to say Giant is bar none, the best software, with Vicon being some nice hardware. BUT after using the giant system, I can say that the hardware only makes up a small portion of the solutions. Software is far more important. Of course, better cameras also lend to better data.

hope that helps.

yes and no.

it is being used more and more, but jobs are just as come and go as they are in any other part of hte industry.

Give it a couple years though, the industry is stil relatively young compared to a lot and it has a ways to go still.
