Motion Capture Lab

25 April

Mocap Lab in the news

AUT’s Motion Capture Lab has been in the spotlight recently with the Newshub show Story visiting the lab to find out more about how the only university motion capture lab in New Zealand works. 

The attention comes after AUT's digital design students involvement in the production of the New Zealand animated documentary entitled 25 April. The film focuses on the 1915 Gallipoli Campaign, and is directed by Leanne Pooley. It was selected to be screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

The AUT Motion Capture Lab is dedicated to innovative Motion Capture research, teaching, and practice across a wide spectrum of applications and disciplines. This includes production in animation, gaming, visual effects, digital cinema, previsualization and virtual production, documentary, dance, performance, installation and the visual arts.

The lab is a fully equipped motion capture facility suitable for a range of body, facial and object capture, including a virtual camera, live data streaming and post production motion data solving and processing. The Lab’s resources provide the community with access to high-end technologies and are available for students, faculty, staff and external partners interested in the exploration of innovative uses of motion capture.

The lab is available to book for creative and industry projects such as game development, animation, advertising, and film companies. We welcome directors, producers, actors, artists, curious creatives and anyone else that would like to use the facilities to contact us.
