Live motion Capture
Bring CGI Characters To Life
Motion Capture (MoCap) is the process of translating human movement into other mediums such as video games and movies.
Nowadays we see motion capture most often in blockbuster films such as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or Lord of the Rings in which real actors don a variety of motion capture suits in order to record subtle expressions and lifelike body movements. In the film and video game industry, motion capture has gained enough respect to be called performance capture, in order to honor the actors that work hard to bring CGI characters to life.
