Mo-cap – motion capture – is the best way to input natural movement into computer animation.

It captures all the subtle elements of how an actor moves, ensuring that an animated creation, however wild, is still grounded in reality. 

Developing skills for next generation games

It is a vital skill for applications from medical to military, but perhaps the most prominent is in entertainment: in movies, and particularly in games. It provides the underpinning for a whole range of characters, and a real shortcut to developing the new worlds that games demand, replacing laborious frame-by-frame animation. 

That is why mo-cap is an increasingly important element in practical media studies courses at universities. Students need the right technical environments to develop their skills, and to be completely familiar with the technologies they are likely to meet as they move on with their careers. 

Xsens Platform: Quick and Easy Calibration 

CJP has partnered with leading motion capture specialist Xsens, to distribute its technology in the UK education market. Xsens is an industry leader, used by many of the top games producers and movie effects houses, and its software is readily integrated into other tools to create complete ecosystems. 

The Xsens platform is designed for quick and easy calibration. Each performer wears 17 wireless trackers which the software transforms into a live, low latency whole-body model. By feeding this into animation software, the artist can refine both the look of the character and the movements of the actor. 

The system can be extended with gloves to get multi-jointed finger movements, and with facial tracking to capture expressions.

Facial Motion Capture Solutions

CJP offers the opportunity to enhance the capabilities of motion capture studios by integrating Facewear technology. Facewear is a comprehensive facial motion capture solution that enables precise capture and replication of facial performances. By utilising advanced markerless software and machine learning techniques, Facewear allows animators to achieve realistic and believable facial animations.

With Facewear, motion capture studios can accurately track facial movements from live or recorded video footage, ensuring the translation of subtle nuances onto digital characters. This technology contributes to higher quality and fidelity in the final animations, enhancing the overall realism and authenticity of the characters.
