Looks really cool! Thanks for posting. Looking forward to the full video.

But the main reason I wanted to write is to thank you for Brekel Kinect. I've been playing around with it recently and it is really amazing! Everyone I've showed it to has been blown away by it.

Thank You!!
-Dave

Thanks Dave, glad you like Brekel Kinect.
This project was using an XSense suit for the motion capture part.

And in fact this "Mocap Mapping" project has been one of the reasons I haven't been able to update Brekel Kinect in the last few months.

Yes,.. Thankyou for this. I actually got it working with MotionBuilder. I saw a link somewhere that you got it working with multiple Kinect camera's?

It looks very promising. Look forward to see the full version. Thanks for sharing.

This reminds me of Gorillaz and Madonna @ Grammy Awards 2006: http://vimeo.com/7047817


http://www.eyeliner3d.com/gorillaz_...mmy_awards.html



Killer shot is around 3:10 where Madonna walks behind Murdoc (love his reaction!) and in front of 2D.

I'd love to see Gorillaz (and you) push this further.

(here'd MTV Awards performance too: http://www.eyeliner3d.com/gorillaz_mtv_awards.html)

Gorillaz indeed is cool, I believe it's done using a technique that projects on a special transparent screen that's mounted on the stage, so Madonna can walk in front and behind.

The characters were pre-rendered though, so all the interaction was scripted up front. Still very cool though.


Btw, our Making Of is online now:
