Few forms of martial-arts are as challenging to capture as Wushu. The speed, torque and breaks, that makes Wushu the unmistakable stable of china-town films, are one of the hardest types of movements to capture. Compound this with the need for at least two performers interacting with each other in long, mid and short distance hits and grapples, and you have a recipe for mocap disaster.
For this test we enlisted the help of IC-Movement London's premiere resource of movement performers. After listing our technical requirements ("hi, we'd like two baddass wushu people, please!"), Adam Rae provided us with 2 world class wushu experts. Steve Coleman and Ivo Arsts (pictured below).
Thanks to our beloved mocap hardware we were able to record almost 26 minutes of challenging fight routines in a single (short) day of capture.
If your project requires fast paced action, weapons and multiple performers, well, now you know where to go. ;)
The Mocap Studio is very proud to be able to show off the work we did in collaboration with NoGhost and Friends Electric. We were responsible for the motion capture of the athlete tennis player. Working with NoGhost and Friends Electric is always an absolute pleasure and we're looking forward to many more collaborations with them!
The last few weeks have been very exciting at the Mocap Studio! We've been hard at work consolidating our company structure and helping Nagapi develop and test their ground breaking facial capture system! But one of the most exciting developments this week was receiving our XSENS motion capture suit! It's the latest and greatest XSENS has to offer and currently the best motion capture suit money can buy! Our services are staying at the same price, but our output will be of an even higher quality than before!
The MocapStudio has recently had the pleasure of working with the talented team at Wibbu educational games. Thanks to our low cost motion-capture solution, Wibbu was able to create custom animation for their Ruby Rei characters. We're honoured and proud that Wibbu chose the MocapStudio for their project and we wish them a very successful launch and look forward to helping them bring many more games to life!
Don't forget to sign up to their email notification and follow Wibbu on twitter and facebook to be the first to know the latest news about RUBY REI!
