Dominating Motion Capture
House of Moves (HOM), a world-leader in motion capture services and technology, has released its custom software plug-in Dominatrix for Maya 3.0 on Windows NT, with Win2k and Irix shipping soon. The Dominatrix plug-in addresses several problems by allowing animators to use traditional Inverse Kinematic "key-frame" animation techniques in conjunction with all of the nuances of motion-captured performance and allowing animators to compensate for differences in proportion between live performers and CG characters. A 15-day trial license of the full version of the plug-in for both Maya versions 3.0 and 2.5 is available by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the trial period is over, the plug-in reverts to a free import utility for Acclaim format motion data. For more information visit the House of Moves Website at www.moves.com.
