The custom-developed Stop Motion Capture system is based on the idea that an animation film producer is the combination of two animation technologies. With a unique integration of the Stop Motion and Motion Capture technologies we have designed a software that is able to create special artistic effects in the animation film making business. In our system the animators can work with specifically designed, flexible skeletons instead of the puppets used in the traditional stop motion processes. With this method, the recording of motion can be sped up and the process is more flexible. Since there is no need for the preliminary elaboration of the actors, and it is possible to use the recorded motions within modern 3D animation software.
