Last month VIZARTS Lab 1 was held at Aalborg University, in Copenhagen where students, directors, cinematographers, scriptwriters, producers, animators, programmers, designers and researchers got together for three days to explore real-time motion capturing technologies to create innovative cases for engaging storytelling.
At the event Tommy Thore Ipsen, from World For Story Studios – showcased how his team is using iClone’s Motion LIVE mocap platform and realtime animation tools, with Rokoko motion capture suits, to create augmented reality apps that engage audiences.
VIZARTS – Lab 1: Engaging Storytelling with Motion Capture
SIGGRAPH 2018 was held in Vancouver on August 12-16, and Reallusion is pleased to be featured by Cartoon Brew as one of the 12 Cool New Pieces of Animation Tech at SIGGRAPH.
Alongside with NVidia’s single GPU for real-time ray tracing, StarVR’s new headset, A.I. in Allegorithmic’s Substance, Sketchfab’s new way of looking at huge 3d datasets and other industry new tech — iPhone X Face Mocap was selected as one of the coolest new techs in the show.
Face tracking solutions using smartphones were part of several technologies shown at SIGGRAPH, but one that seemed particularly accessible was Reallusion’s LIVE FACE for iPhone X. When Cartoon Brew tried out LIVE FACE, a 3D character head moved and performed lip sync simply from our facial movements live in front of an iPhone.
