Virtual Production

Billed as the future of film-making, virtual production is the process of mixing live footage and computer graphics simultaneously, to get real-time feedback and to make decisions on set about composition, VFX and animations. Combining the power and affordability of game engines such as Unreal Engine and Unity and the visualization capabilities of VR, virtual production shifts the pipelines and creative workflows of film-making.

Virtual Production from Target3D

From StudioT3D, our Central London hub, we can set you up for remote connection with performers, creatives or directors anywhere in the world. Our team are here to ensure you get the highest level of accuracy from our performance capture stage whilst you view the virtual environment and characters in real-time.

Our studio is installed with cutting-edge virtual production technology including:

  • OptiTrack virtual camera tracking system for sub-mm real-time camera tracking.

  • Vanishing Point for real-time UE4 compositing toolkit with lens encoding.

  • Stype Follower, the object and people tracking system that enables physical interaction with graphics and makes virtual objects behave as though they are real.

Specialising in the clean-up and delivery of optical and inertial motion capture data, our animators work across platforms and formats including Maya, Motionbuilder, C4D and Notch, plus all the major game engine platforms. From pre-vix through to post-viz, data cleaning, retargeting and post-animation, Target3D animation team deliver the data you need, when you need it.

All we need from you is an understanding of your desired output format, frame rate and delivery preferences; then we will walk through with you at the start of each project and take care of the post-processing. 


Chosen for its absolute precision, ease of use, reliability and polished integration with on-set tools, OptiTrack remains the choice for the world's premier LED wall based virtual production stages.


The standard for low latency, ultra precise camera tracking for today's Virtual Production stages.

+/- 0.2 mm                                          < 10 ms                                +/- 0.1 deg

Positional Accuracies                    System Latency               Rotational Accuracies

By placing markers or Signature Pulse Active3 Tags on live action cameras, virtual cameras, set pieces and performers, OptiTrack’s real-time 6DoF tracking data completes the Virtual Production pipeline.
