I am trying to pull other posts regarding hardware together by asking a single question.
What would a computer setup dedicated to MOCAP look like?
If we were to go beyond the basic system requirements statement, and build a machine to do the best possible job with ni mate’s version of MOCAP - exclusively - what would that system use? The goal would be a square room with 3 sensors set up on the x, y, z axes. Each sensor capturing simultaneous - independent - data streams. Each stream would be captured on a separate computer and then transferred to a different system for integration in Blender. Please see my post titled: 3 Axis with Blender - for an idea about data integration.
[ total 4 computers - one for processing and rendering, 3 for data capture ]
Of course, the goal would be to reduce the cost of the data capture machines as much as possible. [ That is the impetus for the question. ]
Would this system be better designed to used the Kinnect and adapters or a different capture option?
What does the GPU need in terms of VRAM, speed etc? Can we use a card that does not cost $1000?
Again, I’m trying to go beyond the basic system requirements statement and discover what professional users of this tech are finding to be best for function and cost.
