True Crimes: The Shooting Mocap Pack Coming Soon!

We’ve just finished putting together the work on a new motion-capture pack of animations for you. True Crimes: The Shooting is the first in a series of complete mocap scenes that you can add to your animated projects using DAZ|Studio’s Genesis, G2M, or G2F characters.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

One of the big challenges that we have faced as animators – and we’re pretty sure that you’ve faced it too – is that it’s tough to come up with complete scenes from existing motion capture data. You are either faced with keyframing data, trying to make existing mocap fit, or investing in your own capture system. It’s a challenge any way you look at it.

So, we want to make things easier. We want to see more people doing animations and one of the tools that we’re going to provide to help you do more animated films is complete mocap scenes. Each self-contained scene will have multiple characters all interacting, giving you plenty of opportunities to shoot the scene the way you want. You can either animate the scenes as a single take, or, if you want to get more sophisticated, you can set up multiple cameras and animate the scene with multiple cuts and angles.

In this short scene, a gunman confronts a snitch. We’ve even given you the choice of two endings – one where things don’t end well for the snitch, and one where things don’t end well for either of the two characters. As always, we provide data in aniBlock, PZ2, and BVH format – and we’ve also added in dozens of still poses for the still artists out there!

We’ve picked the theme of True Crimes for our first set of mocap scenes, which will allow us to provide lots of motion capture of thrilling action – just the kind of mocap we love doing. Look at the rest of our catalog if you want proof! Expect lots of Film-noir style action from this and upcoming packs. But remember that you can go way beyond the film-noir genre. True Crimes: The Shooting can be used in almost any setting – film noir, thriller, pulp, superhero, science fiction and even westerns!

Look for True Crimes: The Shooting to be available soon, and look for more in the True Crimes series in the coming months!

Everyday Moves for Genesis, G2F, and G2M Coming Soon!

Hey, we wanted to give you an update on our latest motion capture pack. We just put the finishing touches on Everyday Moves. Now, normally we really like to do a lot of action and adventure mocap, but this time we wanted to put together a collection of motion captured animations for Genesis, Genesis 2 Male, and Genesis 2 Female that takes us right into everyday actions.

Take a look at the preview video below:

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

We’ve included animations for pacing, using cell phones, even trash talking. These can be used for short, quick animations, or they make the perfect starting point if you’re just getting into animation with DAZ|Studio. As always, these are going to be available in aniBlock, PZ2, and .BVH format. And, as you come to expect from the animations that we offer, these are going to be optimized right out of the box for the latest DAZ3D figures.

We’ll let you know the instant these are actually available for sale, so keep checking back. As the saying goes, your patience will be rewarded.

Swordplay Volume One is now available at Daz3d.com

Now, you can create your own swashbuckling sword fight! Posermocap’s motion-captured Swordplay is a construction kit that allows you to build your very own swordfight between Michael 4, Victoria 4.2, and GENESIS.

Here’s a video showing M4 and V4 fighting:

And finally, here’s a video showing how poses can be combined—and then recombined to make completely different swordfights:

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

Each animated pose has been designed to blend with all the others, giving countless swordplay variations between two fighters armed with sword and shield. Even better, each pose has been optimized for the characters and all three characters can be paired off to fight against each other. Have M4 fight M4 – or even V4 or Genesis. Pit V4 versus V4, or even M4 or Genesis. And Genesis can sling swords against Genesis, or M4 or V4. Nine different character combinations.

Daz Studio users get the added benefit, because each animated pose file has been duplicated into an Aniblock which allows you to drag and drop Aniblocks to build your swordplay and then rearrange it until you have it just the way you like it. Swordplay by Posermocap leverages the power of goFigure’s Animate plugin for Daz3d to make creating the swordfight simple and easy.

There are eleven different motion sets included for Attacker and Defender, and each of these includes mirrored poses so that you have have your characters fight right-handed or left-handed. Those eleven motion sets work out to 44 poses per character, or 132 animated pose files (.pz2) in all with an equal number of Aniblocks.

We have also, courtesy of Porsimo, included a Viking-style Sword and Shield set with three different MAT poses for the shield. With Posermocap’s Swordplay, you have everything you need to get started.

Draw your sword, and fight!

Posermocap Swordplay Demo – Rearranging the Swordplay Motion Captures

We’re happy to show off the latest video of our upcoming Swordplay Construction Kit motion-capture pack in action. We have been very busy making sure that each animation will seamlessly blend to animations before and after it, and we thought you might like to see an example.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

Each pose can be applied, arranged, and re-arranged as you wish to create a swordfight that suits your purposes. If you’re using the Aniblocks we will be including in Swordplay for Daz3d’s Studio, then it becomes a matter of dragging and dropping the aniblocks you want into GoFigure’s Animate timeline. You can create entire custom swordfights in minutes.

Currently, we have M4 and V4 complete and interacting well with each other — you can see an example in the video above. We are working on Genesis and getting it to play nicely with M4 and V4–this way, you can mix and match the fight between all three of the main characters offered by Daz3d.com.

New Posermocap Swordplay Construction Kit Demo Video

We’re pleased to show off a new video of the  Posermocap Swordplay Construction Kit Volume 1 that we are developing. This shows the potential of the kit when combined with Daz|Studio or Poser to blend together multiple motion-captured animations into a single seamless swordfight right within those applications.

And we are creating it so that you can pair up M4, V4, or Genesis in any combination of duelists you would like.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

We decided it would be fun to have M4 facing off against a skeleton warrior – that’s the Daz3d M4 Skeleton in the video and he uses the base M4 motions.

We will keep you posted on future updates of the kit as we get closer to release.

Update for the Posermocap Swordplay Construction Kit Volume 1

Here is a look at one of the animations that will be featured in the upcoming Posermocap Swordplay Construction Kit Volume 1.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

The Swordplay Construction Kit will allow you to take your M4, V4, and even Genesis characters and create your own motion-captured swordfight with sword and shield. The pack has been a long time in development, but we want to make sure that it’s as close to perfect before we release it. As you can see from the above video, we have managed to get M4 and V4 working together in the swordfight, but we do want to do a bit of tweaking.

We will also be converting the poses to Aniblocks, which will allow you the ultimate functionality inside Daz|Studio for making your own action movies. We will be posting more videos on this and other packs as we get closer to the ultimate release dates.

Keep checking back to see updates on the status of this and other packs from Posermocap.
