Web Motion Capture
Webcam motion capture software utilizes a computer's webcam to track and capture the movements of a person or object in real-time. It enables users to create animations, perform motion analysis, and control virtual characters or objects through their own movements.
The software typically uses computer vision algorithms and machine learning techniques to detect and track specific points or markers on the user or object being captured. These markers can be predefined patterns or natural features that are identifiable in the video feed.
