Method

This node allows a pre-recorded motion capture data stream to be used as a proxy / replacement for live motion capture data on the Perception Neuron Mocap Skeleton node. When this node is connected to the Perception Neuron Mocap Skeleton’s “Mocap Stream” input, it overrides live data.

The node requires a motion capture data stream to be set via the “Mocap Stream” parameter. This stream should either be a BVH file loaded as a “BVH Animation” resource, or data recorded from Perception Neuron loaded as a “Perception Neuron Mocap Stream” resource.

Attributes

Name Description
Mocap Stream The mocap stream resource.
Active Determines whether the node is active and its data should be used.
Time Mode Change how the stream is sampled with respect to the scene’s playback time.
  • Use Deltas (Continuous/Looping), The time runs based on the frame delta, loops when the play head loops, and the Playback Rate parameter may be animated.
Time Offset The time offset for the animation.
Playback Rate The playback rate of the animation.
Interpolation The interpolation mode for the animation’s keyframes.
  • Stepped, Jump from between gaps in Mocap data.
  • Linear, Use linearly interpolate between gaps in Mocap data.
  • Cubic, Use cubic interpolation between gaps in Mocap data.

Inputs

Name Description Typical Node Input
Active Turn the effect on or off. Values < 0.1 will turn the effect off, and deferred rendering must be on. Envelope Modifier

Outputs

Outputs MOCAP data for the Perception Nueron Mocap Skeleton node.
