Hello Birch.... how can we use a minimum of three cameras ( we are interested in purchasing units for testing) to do simple run, jump, slide moves for a DASH iphone game.

We are limited in resources and need to slowly get into optitrack solutions.

I appreciate any suggestions ...

Hello surfwave,

Full body moves, such as running, jumping, and sliding can be best captured using an 8 camera setup. I can give you all of the information about camera types, accessories, volume size and general setup suggestions over the phone if you would like.

Please send an email with contact information to and I will give you a call to discuss.
