In LiveZ Studio, live camera and CGs work together in real-time. Movements of actors are detected through the sensor which is attached to the camera, and each motion is simultaneously reflected in the CG background. By using deep learning technology, we can automatically generate a CG mask of a human and composite it without using a green screen. Since our virtual system does not require a physical studio or props, our LiveZ Studio is usable anywhere for location shooting. If you are interested in creating a high-precision composite with a green screen, we can accommodate this as well. We can also provide real-time composites with CG characters through the use of motion capture. We can propose an effective workflow based on your needs.

Digital Set leverages on various technical approaches which range from measuring shapes and texture to data analysis, real-time generation and VFX methods.
If we need to work on a scene that is difficult to shoot outdoors for a location shooting, we can create a virtual set in advance and composite the CG image through LiveZ Studio. We will be able to virtually simulate the scene, record in real-time and share it with our production staff.
Digital Set is a useful and effective system which is unaffected by weather. By preparing and generating virtual scenes in advance, we can effectively switch/record more than one scene at a studio.
