Augmented Reality Motion Capture with Face Tracking for Real Time Avatar Animation

Our german Partner induce produced a character show for Walibi theme park using D’Fusion Pro to animate in real time the 3d character. Head and body movements are controlled by the operator using face tracking and all the other effects like facial gestures are triggered with the keyboard. 3D character has been grabbed from an existing 3D animated cartoon.

You can enjoy this show for summer time in 3 Walibi parks : Walibi Sud-Ouest and Walibi Rhone-Alpes in France and Walibi Holland in the Netherlands.

  1. This is the first time i see realtimetracking based on an AR+ system. Its a great idea to get realtime video output. you cannot create this with motion builder or marker tracking system. As I understood you using a realtime renderer which is able to create animation sequences in realtime. So you do not need expensive animation studios when you already create the character as a 3 D wire model. Great approach!
