A couple weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend the Ubisoft captured in T.O. event. It was well catered by Toronto restaurants and touched on a variety of cultural dishes. My favorite was the watermelon cucumber feta salad.
The new location has this crazy facility with a room that captures movement for video games. Ppl are actually acting out the movement of characters now no more Mr. Roboto. They hire actors who are familiar with the roles that need to be played for each game. Apparently they make alot of shooting games here.
Each of those glowing balls costs 8 dollars. These are what creat the the silhouette of the characters movement. After this the animator’s connect the dots.
Looking at the screen you can see the virtual walls and light emitted for the virtual flash light. The funny thing about this is via helmet cam you can make people run into real walls while they see virtual halls.
Thanks for the invite Sarah & Ashley
