MoCap – Week 1

Lab: Calibration and Rigidbody Lab

This week we our first approach into using the MoCap studio and its software. We started by calibrating the cameras:

We wanted to make sure that we stay above or around 10,000 samples per camera.

Next, we assigned four rigid bodies and moved around to see if the tracking was accurate and consistent.

MoodBoard:

I was always fascinated on how the motion capture works and the possibilities it can offer in order to create something beautiful that can relate people with technology. During this course I’m envisioning of learning how to create such beautiful worlds and being able to expand my knowledge in what is possible and what not while creating experiences through motion capture.

Setting up my moodboard, I realized that I’m more keen in combining art and movement in order to create a semi real world where people could transform into other forms of existence. It would be nice if we could combine music and movement in order to transform into different “worlds” and “bodies”.
