Today, in faculty technical meet, we managed to proceed a purchase of Arena Motion Capture software and OptiTrack system with over RM 140K budget. This will include MOCAP hardware and software system with 16 camers setup, a super-graphic rendering PC, a 10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft volume truss structure, Autodesk MotionBuilder 2013, MOCAP suites, and also training and installation supports.
One of the best industrial standard MOCAP system will be available in our faculty. I’m planning on embedding the motion capture practice in multimedia as well as brand new digital art syllabus. Cant wait to see the art of 3D motion. To all multimedia students, these might be the outcome of our incoming multimedia course:
- Realistic 2D/3D character rigging
- 1st animation movie production
- Facial morphing
- Prob animation
- Virtual simulations
- Creative rigging concept and exploration
- and ….. (you name it)
To colleagues, tons of researches waiting for us. Hopefully, this will overcome all obstacles in championing the creative multimedia industry.
