What are the quick tips to maximize my Animation Labeling Credits while labeling animations?
Your description should cover all aspects of motion as thoroughly as possible using as much of the 256 character count as you can - the better the description, the higher Labeling Score you will receive and the more credits you can earn! Each label should cover at least two aspects of motion (action type and style). See our compressive labeling tips here.
How is the Animation Labeling Credits quality score determined?
DeepMotion uses a proprietary model to assess the Animation Label quality. Exceptional text labels that are highly detailed and use up the full character count have the best chance of earning the full portion of your animation credits back. Check out our comprehensive tips here. Be aware that, currently, our proprietary model is designed for English, and incorporating alternative languages may impact your score.
What are the quick tips to maximize my Animation Correction Credits with the Rotoscope Pose Editor?
The Rotoscope Posed Editor allows you to edit your animations frame-by-frame. By correcting joints of the body that may not have tracked correctly you can earn Animation Correction Credits! Check out our tutorial for the Rotoscope Pose Editor.
How is the Animation Correction Credits quality score determined?
Animation Correction Credits are earned by improving your animation/pose within the Rotoscope Pose Editor. The Rotoscope Posed Editor outputs a Pose Score based on the geometric bone lengths and angles generated within the range of a mechanical model of a human. The closer the animation/pose is to the human model, the higher the score and the more credits you can receive.

Do earned credits reset, and how do they match my subscription type?
Yes, earned credits reset monthly and do not carry over. Your plan month is noted at the top of your personal dashboard. The priority of earned credits matches your subscription type, including job priority and other advanced features. Check our pricing page for details.
Regarding the rewards, does this mean all animations are now free?
While not entirely free, you have the opportunity to earn back the maximum animation credits equivalent to the total required for any job. For instance, if a job requires 15 credits, you can potentially earn back the full 15 credits by achieving a high-quality Animation Labeling score and a high-quality Animation Correction score.
Will my reruns impact the number of credits I can earn?
You cannot currently provide new text labels for rerun animation jobs. The label that you provided on the original animation will carry over onto the rerun jobs. The number of reruns you can perform is based on your subscription type. Please refer to the pricing page for details on the available rerun limits associated with your subscription.
Can I use specialized terminologies for motion disciplines?
Yes, feel free to use specialized terms. See our compressive labeling tips here. Do not shy away from cultural/social references & professional vocabularies. Utilize specialized terminologies for each motion discipline if applicable, for example:
- Dancing choreography: Plie, Releve, Pirouette, Pique turns
- Boxing movements: Jab, Hook, Uppercut, Slip
- MMA: Roundhouse Kick, Ground and Pound, Sprawl
- Basketball: Layup, Jump Shot, Crossover
- Gymnastics motions: Vault, Balance Beam, Floor Exercise
