Motion Capture of Drummer
Technology in the entertainment industry has always been geared towards large production houses with deep pockets. Most of the tools that are used in productions can cost millions of dollars. At PhaseSpace, it is our goal to turn motion capture into a common tool even the smallest production company can afford. We have achieved all of this, without sacrificing any quality.
Below, you will find actual examples of the types of entertainment produced using the PhaseSpace IMPULSE motion capture system.

Pendulum Studios

Pendulum is the culmination of many things; from the knowledge and experience of its leaders, to the fervent enthusiasm and inspiring talent of the artists that make up the team.

Pendulum uses the Impulse motion capture system, equipped with 50+ PhaseSpace Cameras, within a 40x40 capture space to create cinematic sequences for games such as Thor: God of Thunder and THQ/Volition's Red Faction:Guerilla.

10tacle Studios: David Douillet Judo

David Douillet Judo is a wide release Judo simulation game in Europe, available on all console platforms and PC's. AMA Studios (formerly known as 10tacle Studios Belgium) wanted to use motion capture to simulate very physical and intense motions of judo masters, which can be challenging to all types of motion capture systems due to the contact-heavy nature and speed of the motions. Using the PhaseSpace IMPULSE system, the developers successfully created the game with minimal data cleanup, no marker swapping and zero occlusion.
