Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Basic knowledge of computer animation concepts. Familiarity with an animation package is beneficial for the CAL sessions.

    Topics
    Overview of motion-capture technologies and pipeline, strategies for successful captures, various applications of motion capture, and typical problems encountered. CAL sessions cover data formats for motion capture; importing acclaim, bvh, and c3d files; constraining motion capture to existing models; and motion blending and warping.

    Description
    An introduction to motion capture, from initial planning to final mapping of data to characters. Various uses of motion capture, including dance, human-motion analysis and recognition, character animation, and facial animation are presented. Using Maya, attendees gain hands-on experience with applying motion to characters.
