  3. 3. 3 cameras arrangement #1 Capture Volume 1 - 1.5 m #2 2 m 120-150 #3 1.5 m
  4. 4. Example #2 #3 #1
  5. 5. The same scene in the virtual space #1 #2 #3 #1 H=1.07 m #2 #3 H=1.52 m H=1.91 m
  6. 6. 4 cameras arrangement #1 Capture Volume #2 #3 #4 140-170
  7. 7. Example #1 #2 #3 #4 #1 H=1.57 m #2 H=2.03 m #4 #3 H=1.49 m H=1.50 m
  8. 8. Tip: If you're using the PS Eye camera, make sure you have the lens set to the wide setting. It's towards the blue dot.
  9. 9. Step 2: plug all cameras to PC and run iPiRecorder x.y.z Mark appropriate cameras here
  10. 10. Step 3: reorder cameras using drag-and-drop (#1 – the leftmost, #N – the rightmost) x.y.z #1 #2 #3 #1 #2 #3
  11. 11. Tip: to determine what image corresponds to what camera start recording, come close to each camera and show on the fingers of its number, then play the video #3    #2 #1
  12. 12. Note: #1 is the rightmost, when facing the camera from the action area, but it should be the leftmost in iPiRecorder (imagine, that you look from camera point of view!) #2 #3 #1 Left hand Right hand
  13. 13. Step 4: direct cameras to maximize capture volume Capture  Volume
  14. 14. Step 5: mark on the ground boundaries of torso, full-length and «hands up» visibility ground Full-length with hands up Full-length visibility Torso visibility (without foot tracking)
  15. 15. It’s convenient to use sticky tape
  16. 16. Step 6: check your resultant capture volume 1. start video recording in iPiRecorder 2. walk across the entire capture volume approaching boundaries 3. play video and make sure that actor always visible (full-length or only torso – depending on your need to track feet)
  17. 17. Quote: «The setup I've been using lately seems to work very well for me: It's a half-circle arrangement, with the cameras about 2 to 3 meters up, and far back enough to see the full figure of the performer with plenty of space around him. I have to check, but I think the cameras are 4 meters or so from the performer, which is almost as far as I can place them in my current shoot space. (I wish I could put them back farther.)» Greenlaw Artist/Partner - Little Green Dog | Senior Digital Artist - Rhythm & Hues Studios
