At booth 266, we will be showing two full body performers driving realtime, custom characters in Unreal Engine, demonstrating the power and flexibility of Vicon’s data capture and streaming capabilities. Get a first hand look at our industry leading Shōgun package and the new, groundbreaking 26 mega pixel motion capture camera – Valkyrie.

Plan to join us for live workshops each day at 11:00 a.m. & 2:00 p.m.

Vicon’s specialist VFX team will introduce attendees to Shōgun Post’s native retargeting toolset and workflow for real-time character visualization in game engines. We provide a step by step guide on how to calibrate a live performer, setup a retarget so their movements can be mapped onto a unique game character and then stream all this content directly into Unreal Engine.

Features covered:

  • Calibrating performers with Shōgun Live
  • The different skeletons we produce and why they matter
  • Setting up rigid props
  • Using Shōgun Post to create game character retargets
  • Importing the character retarget back into Shōgun Live
  • Real time streaming characters and props directly into Unreal Engine.
