In Shogun Live 1.5 and later, you can include up to four SDI video cameras (including sound) in your Vicon Shogun system.

This guide describes how to set up SDI video cameras and related hardware, and how to connect them into your Vicon Shogun system. 

When you have calibrated the SDI video cameras, you can overlay the motion capture data and check the solve against the video. You can also export the calibrated cameras with the image sequence directly into Autodesk® Maya® software as an FBX file. 

The following sections describe how to set up SDI video with a single Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K camera and an Evertz 5601MSC timecode generator, but the same principles apply to other supported hardware.

 For details about this procedure, watch the Vicon video, Shogun Live SDI Video, available on YouTube.

As the videos were recorded using an earlier version of Shogun, you may notice minor differences in the user interface.

Shogun Live lets you link a calibrated SDI or Vicon Vue video reference camera to a rigid tracking object. This enables the video camera to be tracked, providing real-time 3D overlay in Shogun Live while the camera is moving and enabling the animation to be captured to the MCP.
