IKinema on Motion Capture
Snapshot of what to expect: Be blown away by our demo of IKinema Orion, our high-end motion capture solution; we cover how a multi-million pound industry is making its way to our homes.
We were proud to be invited as an Industry Speaker to this year’s The Motion Capture Summit in June where we showed off our Orion and LiveAction software. Co-hosted by MoCap specialists Centroid Studios, The Mocap Vaults, and Faceware Technologies, the event was crammed with demonstrations led by a team of industry veterans and technology specialists, all held under one roof at London’s famous, Shepperton Studios.
Experimenting with the latest tech is indispensable to studios’ Research & Dev teams – the folk at Nickelodeon Animation Lab demonstrate how their R&D time spent using our incredible virtual production software, LiveAction not only delivers the utmost realism for their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, but they have fun with our tech too!

Demand for super-realistic 3D character motion during gameplay and virtual reality experiences is on the rise, and studios who’ve integrated IKinema’s RunTime middleware with UE4 are already making waves with incredibly immersive and highly engaging games. In fact, IKinema is already in pipelines of Square Enix, Microsoft Studios, Sony, Supermassive Games, Snail Games, Capcom, NCsoft, Archiact, plus many more.
Our team is experimenting with the technology now to bring our events to life. See the new trackers in action for our marquee events, starting with a performance by Broadway star, Lesli Margherita. At the moment, only our team members and marquee partners will be able to use the technology, but we hope to make it possible for users to join the fun soon.
