As we prepare for the transition to Gen3, we have to make a few changes.  The core of our platform will continue to run, but we’re limiting access to Gen2 through free accounts via some of our apps until Gen3 is out. 

 

  • Website: Our website will continue to operate as usual, with access to your completed scenes (Projects) and community scenes (Explore). You can register as a new user, including for a free account, download FBX files, manage your account and upload new videos via our custom upload page for processing through Gen2, if you hold a paid subscription.  
  • Windows app: Our windows app will continue to be available on Steam. It will operate as usual, and we will continue to maintain it.  
  • Mobile apps / MacOS app: To prepare for Gen3, we are suspending downloads of our iOS, Android and MacOS apps from the app stores.

    If you’ve already installed these apps, you can continue to use them by accessing your completed scenes and community scenes.However, you will no longer be able to upload new videos into our cloud from the mobile apps. The mobile apps won’t prevent you from recording videos or initiating uploads, but the upload will not reach our servers (and you will receive an email to confirm this). We will no longer update or maintain these legacy apps.

    If you’re a paying subscriber, you can continue to upload new videos for processing through Gen2 via our custom upload page on our website.

 

We hope you bear with us.  The transition to Gen3 is a momentous task.  We’re excited about it, and we hope you are, too. 

 

– Team RADiCAL  

Matteo Giuberti has joined our AI team after five years as a senior research engineer at Xsens, one of the world’s leading providers of motion capture solutions. Matteo brings to our AI team strong domain expertise around human motion and biomechanics. Matteo holds a PhD from Università degli Studi di Parma.

Roberto Capobianco started to work with our AI team in 2018 but has now completed the transition to look after the overall implementation of Gen3 across all hardware and software environments. Roberto holds a PhD in robotics and AI from Sapienza Università di Roma, where he also continues to teach as a lecturer.

Francesco Riccio has joined our AI team to strengthen our development and engineering efforts along the entire deep learning stack. Francesco holds a PhD from Sapienza Università di Roma, where he is also a postdoctoral researcher focusing on robotics and deep learning.

Anand Ravipati has joined the team as a product manager looking after user engagement, analytics, customer inquiries, marketing and industry relations. Anand is an experienced angel investor and has advised many startups.  Anand holds a BA from Penn State University and an MD from Ross University.

We are proud to announce a partnership with Sketchfab to allow users to access their scan previews how they want, where they want.

Starting today, any RADiCAL user can navigate to any scan page and link a new or existing Sketchfab account. On both platforms they can then review Sketchfab previews of all their captured motion. This allows users to harness both the power of Sketchfab’s community of animators and designers along with RADiCAL’s seamless ability to capture motion.

Our goal has always been to provide more freedom for creators, and we think that the ability to bridge both communities brings us closer to that vision. We can’t wait to see what that fusion will create.

For more on the partnership, check out Sketchfab’s blog for details.

We here at RADiCAL use machine learning to animate our world. For us, motion capture for the human body should be available to everyone, everywhere, whenever they need it. We think that you shouldn’t need a dedicated motion capture studio, fancy hardware, or a fleet of professional animators on speed dial. We’re betting that simple cameras, even the one on your phone, are more than capable of doing the job. We can use that camera to allow you to capture human motion, even if you’ve never squeezed into a sensor-covered suit. Our powerful detection and reconstruction technologies give creators a new level playing field. RADiCAL makes motion capture not just available, but usable by anyone with a desire to make their ideas real.

Just like our users, everyone on our team has a story to tell. We’re scientists, engineers, and industry experts, and we bring our passions to the table in everything we do. We’re makers, hackers, and tinkerers; we love creating, coding, and solving equations. For us, RADiCAL is all about expanding the “who” and the “why” of motion capture. We want to improve 3D films and games, and transform art, virtual reality, and the physical world we live in. We want people to turn ideas on paper into more than just drawings. Everybody has a message to capture and we think that we just might be able to help.

We hope you’ll be there with us.
