The Motion Capture Studio has been running for more than a decade, and uses a Vicon optical system to deliver a professional motion capture experience to our students and staff and to filmmakers and commercial clients from outside of the university too.

The studio is equipped with everything required for Virtual Production and Virtual Reality in VFX, Gaming and the Arts – including 12x Vicon T10 and 8x T10s series cameras (capturing at 1 megapixel resolution and at up to 250 frames per second), a Wireless VR system, a range of facial capture solutions, and a wireless virtual camera.

We use a passive optical marker setup and near infrared strobes. We also have a large selection of mocap suits available, and specially-adapted shoes for our actors to wear in a wide range of sizes. Our current capture volume is 25 Sq.m and has a ceiling height of 2.5m.

A key role of our studio is providing industry relevant experience to our students while they study – and our alumni have since gone on to work around the world in the motion capture industry, for companies such as Rockstar Games, Vicon, the Imaginarium Studios and Weta Digital.

The services we offer are free to any student or member of staff within the University, but we also welcome enquiries from outside of the University.
