Motion Capture can be intimidating. I’m going to show you how to do motion capture that can be used for your Unity game characters with inexpensive hardware and software tools with the most basic of setups.

Time permitting, I’ll also demonstrate live capture from a Leap Motion in Unity. (It’s fun to shoot fireballs from your fingers!)
