Tales (from Next Door and Far Away)

Stories from the past. Technology from the present. A whole new world!
‘Tales’ was a cross platform event for young people combining animation, drama, dance and film. Together with Toxteth Tv and a whole load of Merseyside schools, we created and modelled the world of ‘Tales’ and it rocked St Georges!

Here for the first time online are the animations created by Onteca and the young people of Merseyside.

MoCap FTW!

PsyBot Mocap Test render

This is a quick sample animation render of a little robot guy messing around, The animation data came from our first quick test with our new Motion Capture system, when simon was messing around in a skin tight suit, covered in shiny nipples. Not bad for a first attempt, methinks. We learnt about a lot of stuff that we’ll need to work on next time we get a chance to use the system, mainly regarding the calibration of the cameras, in this we had issues with feet going through the floor, because we hadn’t calibrated it to recognise the space within about 4-8 inches of the ground, we also had some weirdness when simon walked around in certain areas of the space, because we had gaps in the recognised space due to incorrect waving of a stick (with a little shiny ball on the end) in the space, that left the cameras unable to recognise a big donut shaped area going round the middle of the capture volume
