Royal motion capture

Post by evengi » Wed Jun 19, 2013 3:47 am

Hi.
I've recently finished a vignette for Norwegian TV.
[img:center]https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/138 ... Heimly.jpg[/img]

Two profiled norwegian celebrities adress world issues.
The two celebrities (one is royal family) was motion captured, and their movement retargeted onto caricature models of themselves.
Models was created in zbrush and rendered in Maya using Mental Ray.

All wires was simulated using nHair.
To create the ride sequence, actor Per Heimly balanced on a log that mocap artist Roger Gihlemoen jiggeled. The donkey was then constrained to follow Per Heimlys hip movement.

In addition to the mocap, their faces was tracked using two head mounted cameras.

This animation was produced using Motive not Arena.
(No Motive video forum?)

Awesome video, Roger. It's been rewarding to watch your studio grow, and the scope and prominence of your projects alongside. Very cool!

You can post these types of videos in the Motive Entertainment forum, which is supposed to be a catch-all for non-tech-support posts:

(We'll likely end up restructuring these forums in the future, to create a single location for all of these types posts, instead of separating by product.)
