DAZ Studio mo-cap plug-in

DAZ 3D and NaturalPoint have announced that a plug-in version of Arena, motion-capture software aimed at animators, will soon be available for the former company's DAZ Studio posing and animation suite. In combination with supporting cameras and sensors, Studio owners should be thus able to handle all aspects of the motion-capture process, including face movements and final rendering.

The stand-alone Arena software costs $2,000, and is nominally for Windows only; DAZ Studio is free however, and is available in a Mac version that requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, along with a 128MB graphics card capable of OpenGL rendering. The plug-in is currently being demonstrated at SIGGRAPH, and should be available in final form this September.
