Even if we didn’t need a MOCAP suit we would of found an excuse to get one anyway.
Just like the ones you’ve seen in “The Making of…” our motion capture suit lets us speed up the animation process and add extra nuances of character and emotion.
The position of each sensor on the suit is faithfully recorded, capturing the wearer’s movements to use inside our 3D animation software. It’s a great time-saver for long sections of animation where we use it to quickly establish a sequence of key poses. These can then be refined by our 3D animators who can fill in the gaps and add that final polish that brings it all together.
