Title:

    Making Motion Capture Useful

Course Organizer(s):



Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    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.

    Description
    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.
