Motion Capture and Animation for Biomechanics
MotnCap Anim Biomech
Motion capture technology is widely used in biomechanics research to analyze human movement and in entertainment applications to animate human movement. In this course, students will have the opportunity to learn the theory and practice of contemporary motion capture and to apply this knowledge to their own animations and biomechanical analyses. Students will also learn how to create rudimentary animations of human movement without motion capture, and will gain an appreciation for traditional animation methods. At the end of the course, students will be able to use their knowledge of motion capture technology and biomechanical concepts to critically evaluate kinematic data and animations of human movements in scientific and entertainment applications.
