HELPING YOU GET THE MOST OUT OF your optitrack system

As the world starts to open up we realise there are many mocap systems and studios that haven't been used much in the last two years. Your staff may have moved on, taking their knowledge with them, or your requirements have moved on from your initial useage. With all this in mind we offer OptiTrack training sessions  - either in our studio or onsite using your own system.



OptiTrack training sessions are hosted by Target3D's Ryan Mercier, who combines his performance capture and filmmaking background with five years of OptiTrack experience. A former tutor at London's MetFilm School, Ryan has provided motion capture training to establishments including Liverpool University, USP College and Middlesex University and has created a curriculum of three OptiTrack refresher workshops. Ryan will be joined by a Target3D motion capture expert engineer for each session.

Course content can be tailored to suit your requirements, speak to for more information.
