Image processing software developer Realviz announced that major developer/publisher Activision has selected Movimento as its motion capture solution for development of an upcoming as yet unannounced movie-based video game.
Movimento is a video-based motion capture solution that is driven by Realviz's proprietary SMART automatic 3D tracking engine. First unveiled in 2006, Movimento offers developers the capability to capture the motion of any non-rigid object such as humans or animals in post-production.
According to Realviz, Movimento offers users a complete and flexible solution for facial, hand, arm and full-body motion capture across a wide range of applications, from game development and special effects, to engineering and behavioral analysis.
"Realviz Movimento is a significant addition to our production pipeline," explained Filippo Costanzo, art director of central technology at Activision. "This innovative solution will positively impact the way we work, reducing both the time and complexity often involved in achieving our production goals."
Added Realviz sales manager Kim Van Hoven, "We are delighted that Activision has embraced Realviz Movimento as their facial capture solution for an upcoming movie-based game, and look forward to working alongside them as they integrate the technology into other game pipelines, as well."
