What is motion capture?
Motion Capture is the process of digitally recording movement to create a data set (or blueprint). This blueprint is then used to create the skeleton of upon which the animator can create a character.
To an actor though, its much much more. Motion Capture (or Mocap) sits at the exciting and dynamic intersection of live performance and digital technology. It allows an actor to be as tall as a buildizng or as small as an ant. It allows that same actor to physically transform and see the transformation right in front of their eyes. It brings their imagination to life!
