In the standard set of plans and instructions for motion capture technology, there is a need to search and rent a large room with a lot of necessary equipment and provide actors with fairly expensive costumes with markers that mark the movement of actors and are recorded by cameras. Motion capture technology is actively used in all areas of the entertainment industry, from simple animation to the most expensive video games and films. However, this process is quite long, difficult and often expensive - and therefore the computer engineer Tobias Nageli from the Zurich Polytechnic School has one very interesting plan for optimizing this process.
In general, his project is to replace traditional cameras and monitoring markers on animation actors with flying drones and infrared sensors. At the base, a special suit is still used, with which cameras record the movements of actors in real time, but now these sensors are replaced by infrared patterns that are recorded by drone cameras.
Two, to be more precise - one of the drones covers the foreground of filming, and the second removes external angles, while both follow the movements of infrared sensors. So far, the system is only at the initial stage of its testing, but it is already becoming clear that revising this approach will allow developers to save a lot of time and financial resources in the future, eliminating the need to rent huge rooms and order additional equipment. As for the costume itself, Nageli says that his prototype still requires technological improvements and customization, since it is assumed that the actor will move outside the framework of the given trajectories.
And this automatically means the ability to set several positioning angles at once when shooting, while it is also planned to improve the capabilities of the drone models that will shoot. It is worth noting that if the technology really passes the final stage of testing, then it has quite good chances to take root in the world of large digital entertainment.
