LLS 1352 - Motion Capture for Art, Research and the Health Sciences

Credits: 3 hrs.
Motion capture, or MoCap, represents the diversity of methodologies and equipment that enable recording, analyzing and representing movement for applications such as visualizations and animations for entertainment, education, communication, health care and the general sciences. You will interact with faculty and experts in the use of MoCap to learn various techniques and applications for capturing and studying movement. You will have access to state-of-the-art equipment like stop-motion stroboscopy, high-resolution technical photography, high-speed video, 3D reconstruction with multi-camera arrays, etc. We will look at examples of athletic movement, dance choreography, the flight of animals and many others. Our explorations will take us from the design studio setting to the MoCap lab to the Filmmaking stage and beyond into the field.
