Motion capture is the process of recording a live motion event and translating it into actionable data that allows for a 3D recreation of the performance. To achieve this, 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. Through this technology, real time results are achieved faster and the cost of key-frame animation is reduced.
