Summary:

Alexander Porter joins us to talk about DepthKit, a Volumetric Video Capture tools and Scatter, the company he cofounded.

Topics discussed:

  • Starting from building an open sourced volumetric video creation tool
  • Creating mobile Volcap tools for non engineers with small budgets
  • How do IR Depth Cams work?

Key takeaways:

  • The need for Volumetric live action capture is on the rise (because of new display tech; ie VR, AR, holographic displays)
  • New Depth cameras are on the rise
  • Big need for software that lets filmmakers use these sensors to make film and art without having a CS degree
