AMASS was written by Dr Andrew Dainis, one of the world’s leading authorities on 3D calibration and reconstruction. He was instrumental in developing most of the motion capture calibration and tracking technologies and approaches used today. This release of AMASS™ is an entirely new generation of technology, with stunning accuracy.
AMASS™ processes the raw centroid data from multiple cameras. By using a specially designed wand, a motion capture volume is calibrated with extreme accuracy. Target data (centroids) captured in the calibrated volume can then be tracked, and several tools and techniques have been implemented to make this painless and extremely accurate. Tracking data is then written to a C3D file for analysis in Visual3D™.
