We’re on a mission to bring digital humans to life

DeepMotion is committed to building the largest AI-generated animation platform for entertainment, social media & the Metaverse.

Our Story

Since its inception in 2014, DeepMotion has been on a mission to bring digital characters to life with our industry-leading physics simulation, AI-powered motion capture and real-time 3D body tracking.

AI & Our Commitment

At DeepMotion, we are committed to upholding ethical standards in the development and application of our AI-driven solutions. We recognize the profound impact AI can have on various industries, and we strive to ensure that its use is conducted in a responsible and conscientious manner.

"Creating innovative animations with our body expressions without heavy motion capture gear, and being given the ability to extract classic human motion from the vast amount of videos on the internet, is a dream to many of us working in the entertainment and social media industries.

At DeepMotion, we have been hard at work over the past decade to employ biomechanical simulation and deep learning technologies to turn that dream into reality.”
