What is Motion Capture?
Have you ever played a video game and wondered how they get the characters to move in such a life-like way? Or wondered how your favorite Marvel villains like Thanos are played by a human actor? The answer is motion capture! Motion capture performers wear a special suit that has either white spots all over them or built-in movement detectors so the computer can analyze the movement of each body part and super-impose the character onto the human form. If they're capturing the facial expressions as well, they'll put small black dots all over the performer's face and have them wear a special helmet camera to do the same thing with their facial movements.
Pretty cool, huh?
