  • MegaMocapVR

    A SteamVR powered mocap solution for Unreal Engine

    VRMocap: A VR-based system. I haven't actually tried this one because it requires Vive tracker pucks, which I don't have, but it looks like the most fully-featured inexpensive option.

  • ViRe

    A open-source VR mocap studio built in Unity

    ViRe: Another VR system. Only tracks head and hand positions, but that means you can use it with a basic VR system. Results are a bit janky, but useable. If you need more than the very limited head/hand tracking, you'll have to supplement it with another animation source.
