Facial Motion Capture
With Face Capture, you can capture facial expressions with iPad Pro or iPhone. It's as easy as recording a selfie video. Start the camera and off you go. The app uses the capture data to generate a moving 3D model in real time, which you can then transfer to 3D geometry in Cinema 4D. The movements of your facial expressions are precisely detected and can be used to create impressive facial animations in Cinema 4D without any previous knowledge. Want to learn how?

Body Motion Capture
Thanks to the new Apple ARKit 3, it is now possible to record entire body movements as well. The videos are recorded in the Moves by Maxon app with your iPhone or iPad Pro camera, Apple ARKit 3 analyzes the movements and transfers them to a 3D "skeleton" that is superimposed on the video. So, you can evaluate the recording of your moves.
Once you've imported the capture data into Cinema 4D - a simple and intuitive process - you can adjust the data there and transfer it to a 3D figure that performs your very own moves.
Please note: Capturing body motion is a relatively new feature of the Apple ARKit 3, so capturing clean full figure motion requires some preparation and finesse. Unexpected results can occur. Maxon will continue to improve Moves as the technological developments progress. Therefore, there are a few things you should consider when capturing body movements to ensure good results.
The person being captured should stand out from the background. So, choose dark clothes for light backgrounds and vice versa. Fitted clothing will produce better results than loose or baggy clothing. Extreme patterns in clothing are also not optimal.
Don't Move Too Fast
Due to the motion blur that occurs when recording fast movements, the contours can become blurred and no longer be precisely captured by the app. Pirouettes and similar fast movements should be avoided for best results.
Moves by Maxon may not be able to distinguish and interpret movements where arms or legs cross each other or are crossed in front of or behind the body correctly. This can cause captured movement to "fidget" for a short time. Quiet movements without repeatedly crossing the arms or legs provide more accurate recordings.
Cinema 4D is required to utilize the captured movement. If you do not have Cinema 4D, a free trial version is available at www.maxon.net
The Moves plugin for Cinema 4D is available at www.cineversity.com
Moves by Maxon is available on the App Store for iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max; iPad Pro 11-inch and 12.9-inch (3rd generation) or A13 Bionic chip devices like iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
