The Power of XSens!

In a previous blog, we mentioned how we had ordered the Rokoko suit, and had plans to buy an Xsens in the future. That day is finally here!

This suit is perfect for our office, and is quick and simple to put on. Not only is it picking up the basic movements when recording, but it is able to note the shifts in weight as our actors perform and act out the sequence needed. With this new piece of tech at our disposal, our animations are only going to become even more advanced. Plus, it will help our animation team by giving them a foundation to build their work on; let’s hope that this Xsens suit will help take off some of the pressure of tight deadlines!

Character Animation Just Got Easier

For a while now, we at Futhark Studios have been wanting a mocap suit to lessen the load for our animators; hand-animating is quite difficult, especially for complex human characters, and takes a considerable amount of time.

With a motion capture suit, we plan to release a lot more character video content – our current plan is to get our hands on a Rokoko suit. For future investments, our horizons are set on the XSens suit. Keep an eye out for future blogs about our progress!
