About the facility

The Motion Capture Lab is the only fully equipped motion capture facility in Auckland offering industry leading technology for performance and facial capture.

We use motion analysis technology that records accurate capture data of bodies, objects and props to help create realistic and accurate animation, while our Faceware headsets give us the edge in facial capture.

Equipment and expertise

Our equipment and technical expertise will give you the edge in creating 3D digital projects.

Our Faceware is a head-mounted camera system that allows you to easily capture realistic facial motion in one markerless take.  It syncs with our body motion capture system to give you a full capture service.

Our technical service extends to post-capture. Our staff and students clean the data using Motion Analysis Cortex software, and export it back to you ready for production animation.


Our facility and high-tech equipment requires certain guidelines for use. Familiarise yourself with these before booking the lab.
