Post Magazine Review: Reallusion’s Motion LIVE mocap platform

POST

Independent film director/animator Solomon W. Jagwe reviewed Reallusion’s new Motion LIVE mocap platform, and how it helped him achieve multiple animation goals within a short time, all within the confines of a limited budget!

Solomon used a Perception Neuron 2.0 motion capture suit together with an iPhone X as motion capture hardware by simultaneously connecting them with iClone. This gave Solomon the freedom to act out the different parts of his characters, while creating banks of animations that he can could later reuse for his new, animated children’s TV series – The Adventures of Nkoza & Nankya

Face tracking solutions using smartphones were part of several technologies shown at SIGGRAPH, but one that seemed particularly accessible was Reallusion’s LIVE FACE for iPhone X. When Cartoon Brew tried out LIVE FACE, a 3D character head moved and performed lip sync simply from our facial movements live in front of an iPhone.
