Motion capture is the process of recording a live motion event and translating it into actionable data that allows a 3D recreation of the performance. To achieve these, performers need to wear reflective markers all over their body which are then interpreted by a computer and turned into digital 3D models. Some recent box-office blockbusters have incorporated this technology during production and have gained advantageous outcome. Through this technology real time results are achieved faster and it also reduces the cost of key-frame animation.
