51: Making Motion Capture Useful
Tuesday, Full Day, 8:30 am - 5 pm
West Hall A

Effective use of motion capture requires a lot of careful planning and data processing. This course examines why human-performance capture is an inherently difficult problem, how proper planning and execution can enhance post-capture work, and how captured data can be used for optimum results. It also explores unique issues in online performance and pragmatic issues in applying motions to characters.

Prerequisites
Working knowledge of computer animation programming and graphics concepts.

Topics
Strategies for planning and executing successful captures. The theoretical and pragmatic aspects of motion-data processing. Methods for online performance and how to apply "found" motions to existing characters.
