I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.

Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.

Zing Features provides latest solutions s for realistic and fast motion capture. Its products can be used in both video games and motion pictures alike.

Zign Track 2

Zign Track 2 is the fastest and easiest way to create facial motion capture in real-time at your home or studio, using a regular DV or web camera.

Facial motion capture from your desktop

Motion capture with Zign Track 2 does not require any special skills or expensive equipment. You can use any webcam or DV camera, connect it to your computer and start capturing. Or, you can record your video in advance, load your video in Zign Track and process it.

Zign Track’s improved interface

You can see the input from your cameras and see the captured motion on the face rig in the 3D preview in real-time. The build in tweak tools allow you to correct any motion or apply exaggeration before, during and after recording.

Select a marker layout from a list of presets or create your own custom layouts. Zign Track 2 automatically detects your markers as soon as they are visible. If small tracking errors occur, Zign Track 2 will detect these errors and correct them while you capture. Cleaning up errors yourself is hardly needed anymore.

Marker layouts

With the different predefined marker layouts you can select the layout that best suits your 3D character models.

With Zign Track 2 it is no longer needed to specify the placement of each marker in your video. Zign Track 2 will search for markers based on the selected marker layout and automatically detect them.

Common export formats

Zign Track 2 exports to the common motion capture formats BVH, TRC and C3D. These general motion capture formats contain bone or marker data and are supported by most 3D animation applications.

Zign Track 2 also exports to the morph based PZ2 file format for Poser® and DAZ Studio™, and a combined bone/pose driven ACT file format for Animation: Master.

Morph driven export

The exporter for Poser®, DAZ Studio™ and Animation: Master creates 70 base morphs based on the captured motion. You can use and combine as much of these morphs as you like to as many target morphs your model needs. This will give you maximum control over your morph based facial animations.

Real-time motion capture export stream

New in Zign Track Pro 2.1 is the real-time TCP/IP motion capture export stream. Using a simple protocol, software and plugin developers can use this to get the captured motion in real-time into their 3D application, engine or animatronics.
The TCP/IP connection makes it possible to stream the data to other computers over a network. A reference for the data protocol is available here. A test application for monitoring the data over a network can be downloaded here. Note: this application does not work with the trial version as the trials are export disabled.

Support for head mounted cameras

For optimal use of the video resolution of the Zign Cam SDmax head camera, Zign Track Pro supports live video input with 90° camera rotation. This eliminates the need to pre-record all footage, rotate and finally import. Now you can simply select the orientation (clockwise of counter clockwise) and start capturing in real-time.
