Motion-Capture: Da Sackboyz

A team of seven people made a short music video with the characters from „Little Big Planet“. All characters and environments were modeled in Maya, animated through Motion Capture and refined in Arena and Motion Builder. Everything was then composited in After Effects.

My first responsibility was the creation of the Storyboard. I then cleaned the mocapped data and connected the Motion Capture data to the rig in Arena and Motion Builder. Since we used a new Motion Capture system, a lot of testing was necessary to find the best workflow through all needed programs and plugins. For future references I wrote a big part of the documentation for Arena, Motion Builder and Maya.
