Accessible volumetric video

Depthkit is the first volumetric filmmaking tool designed to allow anyone familiar with filmmaking to work at the cutting edge of immersive storytelling. Depthkit lowers the barrier to entry for video producers and filmmakers to join the volumetric movement. Depthkit augments existing video production workflows with the power of 3D sensing, enabling anyone to capture lifelike volumetric performances for easy integration into interactive virtual environments

Depthkit Capture & Depthkit Visualize

Depthkit Capture allows you to film with a Kinect V2 alongside you video camera, easily slotting in to your existing crew and equipment. Depthkit Visualize allows for quick synching, trimming and visual design for either rendering directly to video or exporting to popular realtime or visual effects environments.

Realtime Applications

Whether you're creating an interactive piece for the web or placing people into fully explorable virtual worlds, Depthkit assets will work for you. We use a lightweight file format that allow you to stream your captures in Unity or on the web.

Your subscription also includes access to a growing list of plugins & example data, with current support for Unity, threeJS, A-Frame and a simple plugin for Unreal Engine.

Visual Effects 

Supplement your compositing or VFX workflows with mesh sequences, enabling effects not possible with video alone. Depthkit also includes a rendering environment, allowing you to render your volumetric creations straight to video.

Depthkit exports formats compatible with most VFX toolsets through textured OBJ sequences or an experimental Alembic (.ABC) renderer.

*The Depthkit beta costs $650/year. The subscription buys access to the software and all upgrades as they're released, the documentation, plugins, and technical support for your projects. If you choose not to renew you can keep your version of the tool. Since this is a beta, we will all be collectively learning how this tool needs to evolve. Given that, we reserve the right to change the price and/or features in the future. When version 1.0 is released your subscription will roll into a favorable plan in recognition of your willingness to join us in this endeavor.

If you are currently enrolled in an academic program or maintain a non-funded artistic practice, we encourage you to apply for our student/artist discount. You can apply for this program though our form here.
