Facial Motion Capture R&D
Hi there everyone! It's been a little while since I blogged something about myself ;)
Here is a little R&D video of facial MoCap animation. I really wanted to do a MoCap animation for a long time, specially from the moment I watched "The Rise of the Planet of the Apes" movie in the theatre (was an awesome movie). The MoCap animation demonstrated in this video is optics based. I used my mobile phones video camera to record the facial expression footage. Facial markers or stickers used for tracking process were glued to my "skinny" face :D
Anyways ... a little bit of research work that I did during my weekend! Hope you guys like it :)
P.S. The idea, tips and techniques applied in this video is a part of my online rigging workshop for Motion Capture Facial Setup!
