Process Your Takes
Now that you're at the stage of creating your Take - it's time to extract your motion!
Click the '+ Take' icon and select the video of your desired action take.
- Scene: Create a New Scene or select the Scene in which you wish to add your take.
- Title: Give your Take a Title.
- Actor Number: You must tell the system how many actors are in the take, to ensure it tracks all actors.
- Prop: Here you can select if you have any props in the scene you would like to track. Currently the platform supports the tracking of a single football.
- Time sync clapping Start/End: Input the clap times, this should be the window of time at which the actor is clapping.
- Time take action starts: This is the start time of the action in your take. Always start your take when the Actor(s) in the video are clearly visible, holding the t-pose and not occluding each other.
- Time take action ends: This is the end time of the action in your take, or when you want your animation output data to finish.
- Select the calibration you want to use. This should be for the same iPhone positions as the Take you are about to process
- Fingers: ON or OFF. Finger tracking will increase processing time.
- Rigs: Select the Rig you want to retarget to. Find help here on Rig Mapping.
- Click 'Run' and your video will now start processing.
Note: An email notification will be sent out to the user who created the Take, so there is no need to keep the platform tab open while the processing is taking place.
If you have uploaded your rig to our platform then you can retarget the data onto it at this stage. However, if you intend on retargeting your data outside of the move.ai platform, we recommend processing your data on the moveai_male_rig_v3 or moveai_female_rig_v3.
The platform looks for the audio peak from the clap and automatically synchronises all clips for that calibration or take. The aim platform prompts you to set a Clap Start Time and a Clap End Time. Setting this time range i.e. from 00:01 to 00:04 in your Calibration or Take helps narrow down the system’s automatic search window.
The process duration will be dependent on a combination of factors and therefore at the time of this publication we cannot provide an accurate estimate. These factors include, but are not limited to duration of clip, number of phones, number of actors, amount of motion etc.
The platform allows you to specify the time range of the take that you wish to extract motion for. I.e. if you have a take that is 2 minutes (timecode: 02:00) long but you only wish to extract motion for a sub-range such as 00:05-01:10 then you can specify this in the box, as long as the start time is at a moment where the actor(s) doing a t-pose.
