Wow, here’s a 3D motion capture video processing that requires no markers.
I might want to use it for golf swing analysis…
Special effects based on the 3D movements of real actors were once the domain of film-makers with hundreds of millions of dollars to spare. But digital motion capture could soon be within reach of low-budget film makers thanks to new software that records movement without using markers.
Studios making computer games and movies typically capture motion using highly visible markers placed across the body of an actor wearing a tight, dark suit, to help a camera track their movements. The technique was used heavily in Paramount’s film Beowulf, released last year.
