3D Motion Capture – Evolving on Consumer Interest in Immersive Entertainment
3D motion capture systems witnessed unabated advancements, from the primitive rotoscoping to the currently popular AR and VR technologies. As consumers continue to show high engrossment in immersive, high-quality motion pictures, it is highly likely that future evolution of the 3D motion capture technology will be spectacular.
Key Factors Influencing the Global 3D Motion Capture Market
Quicker Delivery of the Final Animation
The amount of digital material required to be refined after the 3D motion capture process is limited only to the actor whose motion is being captured, and this amount does not change based on the complexity or duration of the action taking place. 3D motion capture technology makes it possible to perform several tests before the animation is finished completely. This aspect of the 3D motion capture technology reduces the remaking process expenditure, as compared to other methods of animation, and facilitates quicker delivery. This reduction of cost is estimated to motivate market players in the media and entertainment industry to procure 3D motion capture equipment during the forecast period.
Limited Format Variations
Currently, there are still some difficulties in establishing proportional differences between an actor and the animated object. The digitally animated character can be much larger than the actor’s actual body, thus generating an overlap of members during the 3D motion capture process. There are non-effective ways that transcribe the captured motion to an animated character that has no humanoid form. This factor, in turn, demands extreme and repetitive corrections from animators. Sometimes, due to consistent imperfections, animators are forced to adopt other methods for creating animation instead of 3D motion capture technology. This is among factors that are estimated to challenge the growth of the global 3D motion capture market during the forecast period.
