If you want to impress you need to do something more than just reproduce a performance from one viewpoint. When my stuff was published we at least rendered animated turntables so you could view all round.

I'm not saying the method on the video isn't good, it's the video that's the problem. I saw videos 10 years ago that blew me away, but nothing came of them as they were dead-end techniques that didn't allow much in the way of creative variation - the whole point of motion capture in the first place.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
