Our new Studio product is finally out. See our separate change log post for details regarding its release.
We’re now offering early bird pricing at more than 50% off. It’s only available for a short period of time, but you can lock in the low price for an entire year:
For a short time only: early bird pricing is expected to be available for a few weeks (until 30 September 2020). But we reserve the right to activate regular prices much earlier – our timing largely depends on how many people sign up (first come, first serve), and how fast we can release a number of small updates.
We’ve had thousands of requests to enable a free trial for our CORE product over the past few weeks and months. We’re excited that we’re now in a position to offer it.
We’ve had to work through this carefully. As a small startup with limited resources, making expensive cloud processing capacity available to tens of thousands of users for free is a daunting prospect. But we’re going to take this bet, because we know it’s what our users need.
It’s a first release – we love feedback.
The free trial is a product, just like any other. It was released fast to make sure we get into the hands of those who need it. We may have overlooked stuff and there may be things that don’t work. If so, please let us know (email |book a meeting). We love feedback.
Here’s how it works.
The free trial allows you to explore RADiCAL’s 3D motion tracking technology through our cloud at no cost.
To get it up and running, navigate to the free trial sign up page, hit select, complete the checkout with a working credit or debit card (no worries, it will not be charged).
You can then use the free animation time within one week of starting the trial. You’ll be able to upload videos, privately and confidentially, and see your results visualized through our website, but you won’t be able to download the animation data. (We have sample FBX files for you to download from our explore page.)
As ever, we recommend you follow our guidance for recording video in our Learn section.
Conversion to subscription.
If you like what you see, your free trial converts to a flexible month-to-month Creator account – which you cancel at any time – if you: (1) exceed the trial’s animation playtime limits; (2) decide to export and download your animation data; or (3) don’t cancel your trial by the end of the trial period.
If you would like to upgrade to any other monthly or annual subscription, drop us an email or book a meeting. We will help (including by crediting your already made payments, which is currently a manual process).

In anticipation of our forthcoming release of the RADiCAL Studio, our on-prem, real-time implementation of our AI, you can now pre-buy a RADiCAL Studio subscription. To make it worth your while, until Studio is released, we’ll throw in CORE for free.
Not only will you benefit from free CORE usage until Studio is out, after Studio is released, you’ll get the unlimited animation playtime that comes with Studio.

Here are answers to questions you might have:
We’re excited to announce an important expansion of our range of products, features and pricing options.
Going forward, we offer four products:
CORE is now the name for our standard cloud product, currently running Gen3. The other products are described in more detail on our website’s product pages. Below are the changes to the Core product features and pricing. Where appropriate, we cross-reference other products for context.
CORE pricing (compare to STUDIO):
Across both Core and Studio, we continue to offer three basic packages, priced identically: Creator, Producer, and Professional. While the most important changes are summarized below, you should make sure to check out the details on our website.
As always, thanks for being part of our community!

Many of you have asked for the ability to process longer videos. We’ve heard you loud and clear.
We’ve increased the maximum duration, from 30 seconds to 15 minutes, for any one video you upload. We’re looking into raising that limit further, but we have more work to do on that topic. To support longer videos, we’re also making two related, and important, changes:
As always, thanks for being part of our community!

We detected and fixed an issue today that, between June 13 and June 15, caused our web visualizer and notification systems to malfunction, such that many users were not told when their results were ready (even though they were).
We’re sorry if this has affected you. It has now been fixed, all of your scenes have been processed, and results can be viewed. If you were affected by these issues, please drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can try to make up for it.
Thanks for your patience with us, as we roll out Gen3 across the entire platform.
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.
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.

Dear RADiCAL Community:
We’re excited to announce important changes to accelerate RADiCAL’s mission:
A platform for the world to create, share and explore animated 3D motion content.
Our mission rests on three pillars:
What does this mean for you?
We’re lowering prices, providing new creative content tools and increasing access to user content for everyone:
Over the next few days, we will announce more details about the new content creation tools, largely powered by deep Unity integrations.
We’re excited for what’s to come. We hope you are, too.
A few important announcements from RADiCAL HQ!
Our store is open
Starting today, the RADiCAL store is finally open!
You can now purchase additional playtime in the form of Pay-As-You-Go Add-Ons, or take the plunge and sign up for a Subscription.
Referrals: earn & redeem upgrade codes
Over the last few weeks, we’ve noticed more and more users spreading the word about RADiCAL through our Referral Program. In exchange for spreading the word, we’ve been giving these users access to free upgrade codes for Producer Add-On. You can get in on the action here. For each individual friend you invite, you’ll receive an additional Add-On.
Starting now, those codes are redeemable by entering them when the Producer Add-On is selected. Just hit the PLAYTIME button to start the checkout process.
Many of you have asked to see what other users are creating. We agree. So we’ll start giving the RADiCAL community a voice. Here’s how we’re kicking off:
We’d like to add user scans to the public RADiCAL Samples project. The more users participate, the more the community will see the full range of our technology.
If you want to contribute to RADiCAL Samples, just click here. ?
As a bonus, if we select your scan(s), we’ll give you an additional Producer Add-On for free. ?
Really look forward to your contributions!
FBX downloads are finally here! ?
Even better, we’re giving away credits for video uploads and FBX downloads to everyone for free. Our idea is to turn RADiCAL into a free 3D motion prototyping platform for absolutely everyone.
This means that, starting today, every current and new user just signing up is automatically credited with a free trial of the Producer package. We expect the free trial to last through October 31, 2018.
There are no strings attached and no credit card required. You’ll see the Producer subscription automatically credited to your account next time you log in.
As part of the trial, every month, you’ll receive access to 1m of 30s of Download Playtime in addition to your current 5m of Upload Playtime.
While we make our current AI Gen 2.6 available to all users as a free prototyping tool, we’re already working toward making RADiCAL the platform capable of meeting the demands of all 3D pipelines across media & entertainment.
We are currently pushing toward our new AI, called Gen 3, to meet the high standards of professional production pipelines later this year. We’ll keep you in the loop on the expected Gen 3 release date.
In the meantime, all we ask in return is that you let us know if you have any comments or feedback. We’re always available at email@example.com.
Several exciting developments to report from the last few weeks at RADiCAL HQ!
Below is more detail on each of those developments.
RADiCAL Gen 2.6 & FBX Downloads — for free prototyping:
We have decided to make our current AI Gen 2.6 available as a prototyping tool for the film, TV, gaming and XR industries. Gen 2.6 will be available for free to everyone within reasonable limits. (Power users that need more playtime will be able to upgrade their accounts.)
The FBX download feature for Gen 2.6 will be made available to a limited number of beta users today. Please look out for an email. First come, first serve. We then expect to expand the download feature to all users for free within a week.
RADiCAL Gen 3 — for production pipelines:
We’ve also started working on the development of a completely new generation of our AI we’re calling RADiCAL Gen 3. We’re proud of the results we’re delivering with our current AI, but we want to go above and beyond to allow our product to match the high expectations of professional pipelines with Gen 3.
Gen 3 will utilize advances in our science to capture results with more organic, fluid and expressive motion (including better footlock) than ever before.
RADiCAL Unity SDK:
With the launch of our SDK, you will soon be able to integrate our motion into your Unity workflow simply by installing our plugin, entering your credentials, and adding our motion to your apps. (Unreal will follow soon thereafter.)
Whether you’re trying to make the next great AR experience or use our motion in the next groundbreaking mobile game, we want to help! Creating apps that use RADiCAL Motion should be as seamless as the capturing process itself.
* * *
As we get closer to release of both our SDK and RADiCAL Gen3, we’ll clue you in about pricing and availability information. Until then, keep your eyes on the changelog and your email inbox for more features and tricks for using RADiCAL!
Over the last few days, we’ve been thrilled to see interest around our story grow, and we’re really inspired by some of the ways we’ve heard about ways people are planning on making the most out of RADiCAL.
That’s why we want to see what you’ve created so far!
Starting today, we’re running a contest to try and find the best scans from our public beta. Here’s what you have to do in order to enter:
The owner of the scan with the most likes by the end of next week will win a Free Creator Subscription for ONE YEAR.
Don’t miss out on this chance to earn free motion capture!
Starting today, you can invite your network to join RADiCAL. In return, we’ll give you a free Creator Add-On for each friend that accepts your invite! No purchase necessary for either of you.
Each Creator Add-On gives you free video upload and FBX file download playtime for your scans. Simply navigate to the user menu in the upper right hand corner, and select the button labeled “Free Playtime”:
From there, you can share your referral link on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, and by email. We’ve gone ahead and written an email you can send out to multiple people at once, or you can take your time and write out the message however you’d like!
Once a user registers after clicking the link you’ve sent, you’ll receive an upgrade code. When our store opens up in a few weeks’ time, that upgrade will be redeemable, giving you free playtime, no credit card required!
Make sure you spread the word!
RADiCAL is AI-powered 3D motion capture. No suits, no hardware, no setup. Right from your phone.
Today, we are launching the latest generation of our AI (we call it Gen 2.5) through a free public beta for users across 3D animation, 3D graphics and 3D content creation, including AR & VR. Though we still have to do a little more rocket science to adjust all our dials, we’re counting down to our full liftoff soon after that.
Starting today, you can create and preview 3D motion capture scans through our web and mobile apps.
Gen 2.5 is focused on basic mobility. Basic mobility means conventional gesturing, stepping, walking and other movement from left to right, rooted in standing and sitting motion. Within those categories, you can get more nuanced: we have seen great results with full 360 turns, basic dance and the expression of different moods (happiness, etc.) through motion.
To get the most out of this release, just a few tips:
Because this is about basic mobility, go easy on non-conventional, complex motion, such as athletics (squatting, jumping, rolling across a floor, push-ups, etc.), fighting and intricate dance, as well as long walks into depth.
Play nicely, and you’ll get best results!
Until then, scan away, and don’t be shy. We’re here to help.
A quick note from the team at RADiCAL:
We have decided to temporarily open our doors to public registration and use of a trimmed-down generation of our AI technology.
We’re proud of the progress we’ve made on our web app, and we think our users should have a swing at it now. A new version of our iOS app is available for free download as well.
Just come straight in – it’s free, too. We’d love your feedback. Every little bit helps us improve.
There are limitations that come with this release. In a few days, we are releasing the full version of our AI, which will feature the following improvements:
