Motion capture session here in Bangkok for an animated feature I was hired to co-write.
Multiple motion capture cameras ranged around the studio shoot off of reflective beads/balls placed on actor’s joints, interpolating them into a seamless 3D animated wireframe in a computer…animation skins can then be digitally wrapped around the wireframes to create seamless 2 or 3D animated sequences (ala Avatar and other movies).
There is ongoing debate and discussion/argument in the animation field as to whether motion capture represents ‘true’ animation.
Anyway, check it out !
