JUMPERS FOR GOALPOSTS…
June 18, 2014
… A warehouse for a pitch. We recently spent two days working in a motion capture studio, capturing the moves of professional footballers for an online football game.
Players from the Oxford United first team donned the mocap suits which are dotted with special markers, and showed us some of their best moves on the ‘pitch’. Meanwhile, a complex rig of cameras was capturing every aspect of play, producing video footage ready to be used as a framework for the animations.
The aim is to make the animation as true-to-life as possible. Using the mocap and video production technology allows the animation to look ultra realistic, as it captures even the most complex of moves in a physically accurate manner.
We can’t wait to see the results.
