Shooting with Multiple Actors
When filming with multiple actors it would be easy to assume that the workflow changes drastically when using the system. However this couldn't be further from the truth. In this documentation I will be going through the workflow to process animation data with multiple actors.
When recording a calibration the workflow doesn't change at all. Click this link to learn how to Create a Calibration.
When your recording your takes with just one actor you clap 3 times in the centre of the capture volume followed with a 2 second T-pose before creating your animation. With multiple actors this stage is a little different.
- When your recording your takes with multiple actors the workflow has an additional step. One of the actors must follow the normal protocol by clapping 3 times and standing in a T-pose in the centre of volume for 2 seconds.
- All other actors that wish to be tracked must stand in the capture volume in a T-pose. The actors in the volume should position themselves atleast a metre apart.
- When everyone has stood in the T-pose for 2 seconds you are free to move around the volume. The system will track each actors movement. GET CREATIVE!

When processing the takes the workflow doesn't change very much. However it is essential that when you are inputting the options that you select the correct number of actors in the recording. The number of actors needs to be changed in the Actor Number tab.
