“With live rehearsal, we successfully recorded all three planned dances within 45 minutes, including an additional one decided during the connection with Corinne. The solution instantly delivered high-quality captures, reminiscent of past optical mocap shoots, via the app, making it incredibly convenient to direct a mocap shoot from a meeting room setting.”

“Super easy to book and organise, all worked straight out the box, having real-time controls to see the motion from every angle was phenomenal and would have saved a lot of time. Crucially we didn’t have to rent a studio, any kit, or any additional hardware. So we were blown away with how much we could do for such an affordable price.”

Working with the actor was a delight, within our hour session we captured multiple animations that needed minimal post processing for later use in our galactic trailer.

Deliver your creative vision with ease

Authentic motion capture with Performit Live

Learn more from our Co-Founder, Jon Dalzell

At Performit Live, we know how hard you, as a digital creator, work to deliver your vision.

To capture that vision, you need to be able to create authentic motion. Researching, organising and producing motion capture takes time and money, often leaving you working against the clock.

We are aware of the high attrition rate in the industry, with 90% of animators citing high stress and burnout. There is a need within the industry for more efficient and effective working processes and methods for you to take control of your motion capture requirements without the difficulties of traditional methods.

That’s where Performit Live comes in. Our platform digitally connects you seamlessly with highly skilled professional performers wearing our smart motion capture system enabling you to direct the performer through remote rehearsal, capturing the exact moves you need and downloaded to you in seconds. What’s more, it’s a fraction of the usual price. A 20-minute connection with a highly skilled performer costs you just $36.

We are removing your constraints and unlocking your creative vision so that you can deliver truly authentic motion on time and on budget.
