Question about Sound for Motion Capture

Brian C

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a film student doing research on sound equipment and I was curious about the kinds of microphones used in motion capture. From what I've gathered, lavs are the most typical method of capturing dialogue in this setting because they can be incorporated into the actors' mo-cap suits. But I was curious if a shotgun microphone was also usable in these types of environments because the actors are surrounded by hundreds of cameras. Does a boom mic interfere with the motion capture process since it is bound to be visible by at least one of these still cameras, or is it still the same principle as a typical film shoot where it just has to stay away from the primary camera? Thank you!
