I finally got these videos posted! This was an incredibly fun day for me. I was fortunate to spend the day with Motus Digital in Plano, Texas. They are a motion capture and film studio, and they were kind enough to show me every bit of detail about how motion capture technology is used to create movies, TV shows, and video games. You might have seen some stuff on how mocap is done before, but this is a very real, behind-the-scenes look at the technology that enables mocap. Not to mention that the guys at Motus are fun to talk with.
One thing that sticks out during the interview is that they are completely a Windows shop and attribute much of their success to 64 bit Vista.
