Cheap motion capture / performance capture systems?

I don't think "cheap" and "motion capture" go together, do they?

Although Google and YouTube say differently - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cggrDnjdUwI

You can also use Blender and Kinect - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UPZtS5LVvw


Wanting to mo-cap people for RotorHead? Would the effect even be worthwhile on such small characters? Or is it for something else?

Nothing to do with that. Been offered some video production work with not insignificant amounts of money changing hands. But I'm not going to take it unless I'm absolutely 100% sure I can pull it off within budget.

Cool. Just tell them you can do it! Then work out how...

Apparently you can do all of this with an Xbox Kinect and software called Brekel Pro Face 2 (and Pro Body 2). $239 for both, plus whatever a Kinect sensor costs.

Better not interfere with the development of Rotor head!

it will actually help, because it'll give me some budget to work with!

Just be sure you CAN do it, before you make any promises! (Unless they're willing to take a chance on you)

He'll take a punt. He's got more faith in me than I've got in myself.

Cool.
Nice to have someone willing to pay for you to try new things
