The creators of Exquisite Motion Corpse went to Dresden Germany to use the Drematrix motion capture studio. There Chris and Martin spent two full days shaking their bodies to crazy beats and sound effects. The motion capture data will be used for future versions of the art installation where new bodies will be combined from both virtual and live action models. Check out some of the behind the scenes photos below.
The Drematrix studio is one of few systems in Europe and allows human motions to be captured without the need of suits or markers and includes a system consisting of multiple cameras and a retro-reflective background. The system detects individuals via high-end image-processing algorithms and tracks their actions, adapts automatically within seconds to changing players and supports Autodesk MotionBuilder.
