Motion Capture provides realistic animations, giving characters a natural look and behavior.
The applications of motion capture are multiple. The best known are obviously the production of 3D animated films, or the integration of artificial characters in audiovisual media: video games, cinema.
But it is also used in fields as diverse as medicine or the digital arts.
A suit is equipped with inertial sensors which indicate to software the position and orientation of the members of an actor. This technology, relatively easy to implement, is ideal for making animations of characters with human behavior.
