Question Motion capture with markers

Hi,
I made a motion capture test with markers :



First of all : I don't want to buy a kinect, I conceived my suit for free.
Now what's the best software for this kind of mocap, I tried Autodesk Matchmover, but it's rather disappointing, I saw on the net Optitrack ARENA and Motive, how are they ? (especially ARENA, even if it's replaced by Motive)?
Also "The Captury" looks good and doesn't require any marker, but I can't get it and it requires many cameras (I have 6 maximum, considering also webcam and smartphone) Yes, it's very homemade, but I can't do it another way (and I don't really want to).
What other software is there for that?
Any remarks about this test? (don't forget it's a gif and the black fade was made very quickly, it's not definitive)
Thanks for your help

Have you tried IPISoft's package, its compatible with most off the shelf camera, motion sensor, controller peripherals and runs as "markerless".

Also from info mining CGT thread posts together with online sources the app is configured to single "actor" capture, however consult the software documentation on that.

Cheers ;)

Thank you for your help, but unless I'm missing something, I think that this presentation video :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHNRZ33H8g0#t=195
says that it only works with kinect and Playstation eye, and I don't want to buy one.

Yea you're correct - hmmm...my bad - had a look at the wiki which I'd missed.

It seems the recommended camera for use with IPI motion capture is indeed the Sony PlayStation Eye for PS3.

Cheers ;)

Question

I installed Vicon Blade 2.0 and cleaned up the videos :



I import them in Blade, but then I don't know how to process and create 3D points.
I searched in the tutorials, on Google and in the software's help, but it's all about realtime capture, and I can't do it live with my 4 cameras :



BUT IF I CAN IMPORT, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE IT, RIGHT ?
How can I do this ?

Question

I finally calibrated the cameras thanks to Ipi soft. I imported them into Blade, as well as the video files, but now I need to assign the cameras to the corresponding videos in order to analyze the markers. I searched a long time. Is it possible?
