Here is our latest video interview. David Cragne from CLARTE presents L.A.P.S., a performance capture tool aimed at VTubing and videoconferencing!
Although VTubers are at the heart of this project, it is also aimed at a wider audience, including artists and studios. Thanks to L.A.P.S., you can use a 3D avatar for streaming and with videoconferencing tools. It could also be used as a low cost facial mocap software.
