Live link motion capture is becoming increasingly popular technology within virtual production workflows. The requirement for high-end and expensive hardware and software is almost non-existent with free or inexpensive options centre stage. 

The applications for this tech are widespread including film, TV, archviz, advertising and videos for education. Some cases will still need higher-end solutions, but for a lot of the industry these emerging tools will begin to take centre stage. Projects that could have benefited from some form of custom animation but didn’t have the budget will now find their options wide open.
