Word of the Day – Mocap!

Posted by on 37 comments

Today we tried out motion capture software to see if we could streamline our animation process. Thyton was the motion model and it was quite a bit of fun watching him jump around and play fight. Once we plugged it into the model – oh, did I forget to say that he was doing this for the FEMALE MODEL. HA hahahahaha! *wipes tear from eye* Anyhoo – Once it was “plugged in” to the model the test was pretty successful. It really captured his movements. The body, and legs were pretty much spot on. The arms needed some work, and we are going to try to add another camera to get a more finely tuned capture. Imagine if we put Artix in front of the mocap camera?? Well, that’s it from me today… no new concepts today, but I’m pretty sure I’ll have some on Wednesday. Yergen out!

.Joerte: Forget the sketches (by that i mean post them a nanosecond later) and show us Thyton with the mocap camera.If you want Artix in front of the camera dress Rolith as an undead. Im pretty confident that will work.
If that actually worked /facepalm multiplied by a googolplexian it is a real number

And where is ae getting all this money theres new servers for df and mq and mocap. I blame/thank aqw.

_negachin_: You really need to post the video of Tyton with that MoCap Camera.
Should be amazingly hilarious xp
And by that we would also be able to see how the characters move in-game.

na tra: The creation looks great so far, how about a flying pet place to get the starter player to get them where they needed to go for quest or other things.. For a small amount of price.So yeah can't wait till it comes out- shout out to Dage the Evil { My favorite NPC's!!
P.s, Pets should still stay for member such as a eagle-tiger/ and for the non's VIP the should pets at the right level and have to waited to hatch}} am getting most of these for most of the resent game a have play such as Wizard 101,World of warcaft,ect. {{ 3D games so yeah yall should look at those game and use some of there ideas with your's[ I hope I would be a mod someday xP... Sincerely, Tam Nguyen- Thanks You if you have read this and have a great day/night.
