Why is Motion Capture Good? Human and human-like characters Retains subtle elements of a performer’s style Powerful solution when animations must be generated quickly Immersive virtual environments “because you squished a jellyfish and took out the magic juice”
Image of page 2
Why is Motion Capture Bad? Optical and magnetic systems suffer from sensor noise Sensors require careful calibration Precise measurements of limb lengths Taken by hand in a reference pose Tedious Prone to error Often impractical “this has been my life’s passion for the past day”

Purpose of Algorithm Address the problems associated with calibration by automatically computing joint locations Perks No external measurement No constraints on sensor placement No posing in particular configurations Requirement Data must exercise all DOF of joints for an unambiguous answer “minification is used to create a minified version”
Image of page 4
Method Comparison Some methods Joint location determined from weighted average of points Concerned with detailed model from data points Use multiple markers for redundancy Instantaneous joint center from single instant of motion This method Does not require manual processing of data More concerned with creating animation

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
