🏃Capture Space Setup

Guide on the recommended space setup


Rokoko Vision supports both a single and dual camera setup. In this guide, you can read our overall recommendations on setting up a good capture space.

Overall rules of thumb for the space setup:

1. Enough space so the camera can see you in full frame. 2. Remove obstructions to be able to move freely and avoid occlusion 3. Ensure good lighting conditions. 4. Mount the cameras properly in stable positions. 5. Avoid reflective surfaces like mirrors in the room.

Single Camera

Using a single camera for casual motion capture productions can be sufficient, mounting the camera on a tripod or on the top of a screen so it's between your hips and head is an ideal setup.

Dual Camera

The room size needed to record with dual camera can vary based on several factors, including camera specifications, and the desired capture volume. Generally, a larger room size is preferable for capturing full-body movements without any obstructions. Here are some general guidelines:

A room size of 4x4 meters (13x13 feet) is be suitable for basic mocap setups, giving you a capture area of approximately 2x2 meters. This setup is also suitable for smaller-scale projects.

If you need a bigger capture space, you can just scale this setup accordingly.

  • Position the two cameras at appropriate locations to capture the subject's movements effectively. Ideally, they should be placed at roughly 45° - 90° as illustrated above. The full body is visible on both cameras.

  • Cameras distance from capture zone are recommended to be at least 2 meters away

The size of the capture area will depend on the camera's resolution. For optimal results, it is recommended to use a camera with Full HD resolution (1920x1080p) or higher to ensure that the camera can capture the necessary level of detail.

Ceiling Height

Along with the floor space, it's essential to consider the height of the room. A minimum ceiling height of around 2.5-3 meters (8-10 feet) is recommended to ensure that subjects can perform motions without their movements being restricted by low ceilings.

Unobstructed Area

Ensure that the recording area is free from any obstacles, such as furniture, large objects, or reflective surfaces, which can interfere with the mocap process or cause unwanted reflections.
