Animate 3D Video Capture Guidelines - Make Your Best Animation!

DeepMotion’s Animate 3D provides full-body tracking from a simple video input. In order for our service to generate 3D animations accurately, there are a subset of guidelines that should be followed in order to generate the best animation possible. Our team continually works on improving the overall tracking quality on our end, but as a user, there are some things you can do to help improve your results!

Check out this Video Capture Guidelines video for a walkthrough on what you can do to help our AI track your videos for better markerless motion capture.


Subject: The person you are capturing should be a human - no cartoons or other digital characters.

Camera: Should be stationary and perpendicular to your subject.

Character Placement: The entire body from head to toe should be visible, located 2-6 meters (6-20 feet) from the camera.

Lighting: Neutral lighting with high contrast between the subject and the background is recommended.

Occlusion: The subject should not be occluded by any objects and there should be a single subject in the motion clip.

Clothing: Do not wear loose clothing or clothing that covers key joints like knees and elbows.
