Modulo Pi presents a dance performance with real-time tracking and interactivity

Paris, February 2020 – Modulo Pi is pleased to unveil a dance performance featuring real-time tracking, interactivity and generative content. The all show relies on the Modulo Kinetic media server and KineMotion, the new optical tracking module fully developed by Modulo Pi.

Fully developed by Modulo Pi, KineMotion is an optical tracking module designed for state-of-the-art creative and interactive visual experiences. Available as an option, the tracking module allows to handle the all calibration process directly within Modulo Kinetic.
Combined with the extensive capabilities of Modulo Kinetic – 3D particles engine, nodal editor, timeline sequencer… – KineMotion unlocks new opportunities for creative and interactive visual experiences such as projection on moving objects, particles drawing and tracking, automatic follow spot, light painting, and more.
