3D Motion Capture Buyer's Guide
3D Motion Capture Buyer's Guide

The 3D motion capture system market is exploding, with more than 20 new product launches in the last three years alone. Developers are constantly looking for new ways to offer high-quality motion capture in a way that’s more accurate, portable, and affordable. 

This level of innovation has caused a wide range of options for hardware, software and accessories, which can be difficult to navigate. We’re creating a buyer’s guide to help ease the process. As we continue to gather information, we will update the table below. We have used our own research and the 3D Motion Capture System Market global forecast from MarketsandMarkets to create this first version.   

Overall, users of 3D motion capture systems are looking for high-quality and accurate data for applications such as games, films, biomechanical analysis, robotics, education, engineering, and more. Both optical and non-optical systems provide the capture of human motion, but their usage for each application depends on desired time, cost, and quality. 

For example, animators who are looking to capture advanced motion movement and understand there will be extensive post-processing would invest in active optical systems. Physical therapists who are looking for quick running analysis and have dedicated studio space may find markerless systems are a good fit. Researchers looking for high accuracy, ease of use, and the freedom from a controlled environment would invest in Moire Phase Tracking (MPT) systems. Filmmakers capturing pre-defined movements may prefer inertial systems.
