Face of Mankind Gets a Facelift
The motion capturing studio is a staple of modern gaming development, and the folks at Duplex Systems are kind enough to show us how the modelling and character animations are being redone for the coming sci-fi MMOG. Interesting stuff!
"Here you can see the capture studio. The red glowing devices are some of the
special high speed cameras mounted at the ceiling. The motions of the actress
are recorded by a total of 18 cameras that pick up the positions of the highly
reflective balls attached to the capture suit. For the capture session the light
had to be dimmed and no flash photography was allowed while recording, which
explains why the pictures are dark and a bit grainy. "
Face it! This sounds interesting, so get yourself registered at the Duplex Systems site and take at how they do the voodoo that they do on Face of Mankind!
