“ works! It just works.”

“I love this program, it just keeps getting better and better! Easy to use, and dare I say-even fun!”

Why Cinema Mocap?


Smaller game development teams and hobbyists don't have the money to rent expensive motion capture space and equipment.

Cinema Mocap only requires a Microsoft Kinect 1 or Kinect 2 for hardware, along with the free version of Unity. Now anyone can create simple animations for use in any of their creative projects.

Create motion capture recordings from the comfort of your own home!



Larger projects with larger teams sometimes require a way to test  animations within the project before the company invests in equipment and motion capture space rental. Also, large projects require proper planning and time management.

Cinema Mocap is the perfect tool to capture quick prototype animations to be used as place holders inside existing projects to assist in project planning and development for animators, artists, directors and producers.

Learning and Experimenting

Cinema Mocap creates fully rigged models with associated animations that can then be edited in other 3D modeling packages such as Maya, 3ds Max, Motionbuilder or Blender.

Those starting to learn animation can use Cinema Mocap as a great companion to learn how models are rigged, how bones react, and how motion capture data is collected.

Instructors can use resulting model plus animations as a great teaching aid for students.


Customer Example

Transfer your mind

With Cinema Mocap

Indie Developer Franklin Cosgrove + Archgame selected Cinema Mocap for all their humanoid animations.

Requiring an affordable but durable motion capture solution on a strict budget, FC & A required a Unity solution that could allow them to capture animations on a budget, and still produce great results for their game. They've since won their first round of Kickstarter funding and continue development of their incredible, dream-like adventure game.
