AbstractAs a student of M.Sc. Computer Animation I have tried my best to cover all the aspects of this project. Being a student is great, but sooner or later I am going to have a transition to "the real world". I am about to make that transition; graduation is around the corner and I find myself looking forward to join the workforce. When I look back to my year of study at the University of Bedfordshire, I am amazed that I have learned much but there is much more to learn. The greatest experience I acquired is that with this project I gained a lot of experience to work on the motion capture and learned new techniques that are used in industry to create high quality VFX with 3d animation. I have tried my level best to keep the accuracy in designs and realistic as possible but most important thing is that I have worked for the first time on motion capture and I am very much successful in generating the output that I imagined. The realistic models, usage of MoCaps, mind blowing VFX, environments, materials all have been done according to the perspective of imitating them to the actual objects. By doing this most importantly I have passed through several hurdles and bottlenecks that can appear in the work process. One of the most important characteristic of my project is that I have not used any special purpose hardware for my work. All the designing and modeling has been done on simple core i7 machine without high speed graphics cards or rendering cards. I also haven’t got any motion capture cameras so I bought pre-captured MoCaps from internet. Shots that are rendered in 3DS Max were later on blended with the real life footage using After Effects. After the rendering a lot of work is performed in the Post Production for generating VFX and doing green screening.
