Our highest quality motion capture software yet

Cortex offers the most complete set of visualization tools for constructing precise calibrations, along with intuitive tools that allow you to easily monitor and update the calibration status within seconds. It also offers the highest real-time marker counts.

Cortex is capable of solving the skeletons of any structure with any number of segments, including bipeds, quadrupeds, props, and more, including facial animation. All solving data is stored with the markerset and only requires seconds to adjust for each day’s use once it’s set up. The solving step allows for easy one-step retargeting.

A complete set of tools for motion tracking and editing

The trusted choice among industry leaders in more than 50 countries around the world, Cortex software is used across a variety of applications, including:

Animation &
virtual reality

Cortex makes the real-time previsualization process flexible and straightforward by elegantly separating data processing tasks such as tracking, identifying, skeleton solving, and retargeting. Cortex includes features such as Golden templates for single-step new subject setup and compatibility with Maya, MotionBuilder, Unity, and Unreal in both real-time and from data files.

Movement
analysis

Cortex is the most powerful motion capture acquisition and editing software available. It has a unique identification process, offering the fastest and most flexible way to capture and identify complex movements of subjects and objects. Cortex comes with numerous embedded modules that provide easy-to-use and intuitive interface for various applications.

Broadcast

The Motion Analysis CamTrak is an integrated solution within the Cortex motion capture software that allows for precise real-time tracking of broadcast studio cameras to create live VR or AR sets quickly and efficiently.

Industrial & Robotic

Cortex allows you to design digital prototypes, reducing the costs and time incurred when creating a physical prototype, and allowing you to conduct thorough design analysis and revisions prior to putting the finished design into production.

Embedded modules for a wide variety of applications

Cortex includes embedded modules for licensed users which offer an intuitive interface for a variety of applications, such as skeleton creation, model creation for monitoring movements and kinetics, and camera calibration.

  • Calcium Solver – a powerful skeletal creation, setup and motion solving solution. It is an easy-to-use tool to solve captured marker data onto a skeleton. The marker data drives a pre-defined, rigid, hierarchical skeleton definition.

  • Skeleton Builder – create relatively simple, direct and fast calculations of bones that are defined and calculated from one joint center to another. The joints can be specified by surface markers or virtual (calculated) markers.

  • SONIC Viewer – a distributed computing manager, SONIC (Solver Over Network Interface Card) Viewer allows you to spread Calcium computations for any number of skeletons over multiple computers.

  • CamTrak – a system, unlike any other on the market, that can track people, objects, and cameras in a broadcast studio, whether it’s a small area in front of a green screen or the entire studio space.

  • CamTrak – a system, unlike any other on the market, that can track people, objects, and cameras in a broadcast studio, whether it’s a small area in front of a green screen or the entire studio space.

  • KinTools RT – the industry’s only self-contained full-body kinetics and kinematics measurement package and custom model creation tool.

  • Motion Composer – a tool used to gather, integrate, and present interactive motion capture data in a seamless manner.

  • DV Reference – software that allows the synchronized capture and play-back of reference video data from either a stationary or moving DV camera.

  • Continuous Calibration – a self-diagnosing, self- correcting camera calibration tool, which eliminates wand calibration between multiple users and significantly improves the camera’s accuracy.

Cortex 8: our most advanced mocap software yet

We released Cortex 8 in September 2019 – the latest edition of our internationally recognized software. It includes the following key features:

  • BaSix Solver – using BaSix© active markers
  • Merging forces across force plates
  • Device panel integration
  • Asynchronous device data (ADD) graphs
  • Location of corrupted templates
  • Golden templates – predefined marker sets
  • Global Translations and Rotations (GTR) skeleton data files
  • Back calculation markers from bone virtual markers

BaSix© suitless motion capture

Cortex 8 is designed to work with BaSix, our new full-body suitless motion capture markers.

Whether you use motion capture technology for video game production or for research, the latest edition of Cortex is designed to be more streamlined and easier to use.
