Re: Motion capture systems and martial arts
I have used 3D Studio Max and Lightwave at university. I have been interested in doing some kind of 3D character animation using aikido however it would be very difficult to keyframe animate the movements. My university has a motion capture facility so I may try it next semester.
What would be really cool is to have live action and 3D combined so you can have see through effects like in Romeo Must Die. I have seen this done on a few martial arts documentaries on the Discover Channel.
