Location

Depthkit has been developed with increased capture stability and performance, allowing you to capture on portable machines. With this in mind you are not limited to a capture stage or green screen. The latter is due to Depthkit's support of body index - body index - The detection of one or multiple bodies in the depth data. When generating your assets, this acts as a body mask, allowing you to simply hide the background for clean exports of your subjects. This eliminates the need to shoot on a green screen. segmentation. This is the detection of one or multiple bodies in the depth data.
