This technology is also known as “Live Animation,” or “Real-Time Performance Capture,” is the process of using a motion capture system to render a 3D character alive and in real-time. It can be used for pre-visualization, so the director can preview the animation while the mocap actor is performing, or as a live feed so that real people or audiences can communicate with the actor.

Real-time mocap animation has the ability to bring 3D characters to life and allow them to be at game vantage points, appear on talk shows, speak at keynotes, and cover breaking news.

Pre-Visualization is the most common use of this technology by giving a preview of what the final animation will look like. This allows clients to base their direction on the character’s movements rather than the actor’s sole performance. It also gives the actor instant feedback on how his movements and facial expressions translate to an often disproportionate CG Character.

Footage can be recorded and used as a reference, selection, or as placeholder footage. We can also use the system to intercept photos, animate and record camera movements for a virtual set.

Live animation can also be used to create final performances that can be recorded for immediate distribution or streamed to a multitude of broadcast media. They can be created virtual sets, run sub-animations, interact with props, drives, composite live feeds, insert motion graphics, and more. This means that they are not simply a “digital puppet show”, but can also leverage the entire system, with all its elements, to create an active show.

This is ideal for episodic content, animated video blogs, CG news reports, live webcasts, or creating large amounts of animated content in a very short time.

Real-Time Character Interaction

This technology also allows the cartoon characters to speak directly to the viewer, giving them a truly human personality that people can relate to and connect with. Imagine what connection you would feel if you could ask Geico Lizard how he got into the insurance business or be introduced to Green M&M, who addresses you by name.

This is the beginning of a whole new genre of animated entertainment that will reshape the way we think about our favorite video game heroes, animated movie stars, and branded characters. Applications include; Animated Late Show guests, CG interviewers, cartoon video chats, corporate appearances, comic-con meet-n-greets, stage presentations, expo communication, and live show call-ins.
