Performance capture specialist, Imaginarium Studios, has expanded its facilities with a motion capture studio at  SIDE London in partnership with enterprise games services company, PTW.

The new studio in Tileyard London (King’s Cross) means development teams can now record dialogue and capture full body character performances simultaneously and all in one place.

Commenting on the partnership Alex Hill, Imaginarium Business Development Manager, said “Opening a brand-new performance capture volume in central London, in partnership with SIDE London, is optimal for our gaming clients. This additional capacity, combined with the ability to simultaneously record an ADR session with HMC and body motion, gives us a high quality and cost-effective turnkey service.”

The latest development from SIDE and Imaginarium at SIDE London, the mocap facility, takes the studio beyond automated dialogue replacement capabilities (ADR), allowing for full performance capture of the face, body, and fingers of up to two characters, for more narrative driven game scenes.

2X character performance capture, 16X Vicon vantage cameras & HMC dual and mono cams can be made available for each performer.

“Technology has always driven innovation in the gaming industry, and PTW prides itself on consistently working with the best to create world-class solutions,” said PTW CEO, Deborah Kirkham. “Our partnership with Imaginarium gives our clients end-to-end control over their creative vision – something that all our customers want, but very few service providers can truly offer.”
