Groundbreaking Motion Capture Tech Makes L.A. Noire Shine

We've already seen some impressive motion-capture and animation technology this generation; leading titles like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Heavy Rain have been most impressive.

But we can always move forward, right? Today, Depth Analysis has announced the development of MotionScan, which is described as "a revolutionary new system poised to forever change the face of high definition 3D motion-capture and actor performances in the Video Game and Motion Picture industries." Team Bondi will be utilizing this new technology for their upcoming drama, L.A. Noire, which is slated to be published by Rockstar later this year. MotionScan manages to streamline post-production processing time, and "also promises a radical impact on the quality of performances as they expect to be able to deliver in their game and movie franchises." Said Brendan McNamara, Founder & Director of Team Bondi:

"Traditional motion capture could never bring to life the subtle nuances of the chaotic criminal underworld of ‘L.A. Noire’ in the same way as MotionScan. MotionScan allows me to immerse audiences in the most minute details of L.A. Noire’s interactive experience, where the emotional performances of the actors allow the story to unfold in a brand new way. Through this revolutionary technology, we’re able to deliver audiences a truly unique and revolutionary game."

Oliver Bao, Head of Research at Depth Analysis said they know fans expect CGI actors to provide them with "realistic performances," and they've "focused on making high fidelity performance capture of actors for games and films affordable, accessible and easy." MotionScan uses 32 High Definition cameras to capture the ultra-realistic 3D performances at up to 30 frames per second, and is capable of grabbing nearly 50 minutes of final footage and processing up to 20 minutes of facial animation automatically per day. To have this kind of technology behind L.A. Noire makes us all the more interested in Team Bondi's promising project, and we're willing to bet the visuals will be pretty damn mind-boggling.

good. i think with this generation we can definitely do without the wooden facial animations. i just hope the story and gameplay are also compelling.
on a side note: you'd think this generation's character's body part ratios would also be more realistic. i mean playing dragon age i would be watching the cut-scenes, getting drawn into the story, and next thing you know i see these huge hands on all the characters. i couldn't stop thinking of seinfeld and his girlfriend with the man hands. totally blew the immersion for me.

Sony's new motion controller (Arc?) reminds me of motion capture tech. It's got a ball on the end of the controller and a camera follows its movements. Maybe with enough controllers and cameras, someone could set up their own mocap studio at home.

Given that we know very little on "Agent" and that this tech is new and 'revolutionary' I doubt they would only use it once or for only 1 title even if it's a multiplat.

Such stuff isn't worthy of the "humour" name as it is plain dumb. It has been going on years (by fanboys of all camps), this rhyme something and pretend its a good insult. The 360 has far better games than Halo, though, as does the PS3 and the Wii (IMO).

They can only record from a 45 degree angle or something like that. If the actor turns around, guess what, their face isn't being recorded. I don't see why I got thumbs down for stating what I read in an article with interviews from the developers. There are workarounds for the problem, of course, but there are limitations to the technology.

After Heavy Rain, this will be my next crime noir wet dream. Though not quite feeding into my fond nostalgia of my old games like rise of the dragon and such as heavy rain did. just finished my 3rd playthrough, my canon 1st playthrough was a very real conflicted ending, a hollywood style ending for my 2nd, and a tremendously dark ending for my 3rd lol.

pushtrak the reason the multiplatform games don't perform as well on the ps3 is because the 360 is used as the lead because it is easier to develop for then ported to the ps3 without enough effort to actually take advantage of the ps3s capabilities. This is why you see blatantly better looking ps3 exclusives.

not to defend any side here pushtrak but thats often the excuse someone runs to when they cant find a better looking game than some of the ps3 heavy hitters ( not including pc games, just home consoles ), they tend to point out multiplatforms. Its old as hell, lets not go down this route alright?

that being said, i also tire of hearing the 360 holding something back, i blame devs for this. They didn't hold back last gen when games looked a lot better on the original xbox than on the ps2 so im not sure whats the problem now

edit: pushtrak, early comparisons thanks to some people who know what they are talking about, FFXIII is running at sub hd resolutions for both fmv and gameplay, where the ps3 is at 1080p for fmvs and 720 for gameplay....
im not sayin, im just sayin

A well spoken counter argument. Good stuff. BioShock on PS3 was 680p. I can live with sub-HD graphics. Any time I post a link, it has to wait for moderator approval, so I'll just say google "beyond3d List of Rendering Resolutions". It lists Xbox 360 and PS3 resolutions.

You'll see the 360 actually wins on a lot of the stuff there. But again, that is irrelevant to me. Your point of Final Fantasy XIII wins you that point, but loses you a lot more. Your call if you want that to be your yardstick. I'd really advise not, though.

and that my friend is what i normally think when a multiplat looks better on 360, if its better looking but the ps3 is no slouch either, im cool with that.

Now in cases of the performance being worse, which admittedly has happen before, then it can be a bigger issue.

I'm not stating that the 360 doesn't have multiple endings..I'm looking at the fact that given the limitations of the 360 compared with the PS3 we may be faced with a very linear game in order to preserve the port aspect. I'd like to see Heavy Rain port to the 360..oh wait, that wouldn't be possible.

I got my eyes on this one. Nothing intense like a stare to elaborate...a simple glance every now and then will suffice.

At Pushtrak,
About the PS3 being superior to the 360. It's not better graphics-wise. It's because of the technology embedded in the PS3 and the superior media that the PS3 reads. The PS3 reads blu-ray discs which hold more information thus allowing developers to utilize the 25-50 gigs of storage space as opposed to the 360's DVD storage space (at most a double sided double layered disc can hold about 17 gigs). With this large amount of space, developers can do more detailing on just about everything in the game to make everything appear more realistic and/or polished. The PS3 also has lighting technology that can really add a sense of realism when implemented correctly. I won't say the PS3 has better graphics because, well honestly, that doesn't make any sense. The truth is though, the PS3 is a more expensive product than the 360 and it has the potential to output better quality visuals than the 360.

Thursday, March 04, 2010 @ 4:07:48 AM

The potential to show... That has been said a lot. I'll believe it when instead of the potential, it is the reality. The PS3 is a beast of a media playing machine. I can store whatever movies, TV shows or whatever on it. I can upscale my DVDs or watch blu-ray movies on it. In that respect, it far exceeds what the xbox 360 can do.

However, as a game playing machine, well, the victory isn't so one sided. I think it has been stated RE: LA Noire that the Playstation 3 is the lead platform. It would make sense that it should be, after all, it started out with massive funding from Sony, so development was obviously underway on that version for a long time before it commenced on the Xbox 360. To a tune of approximately two years, in fact.

but reading what has happened during development, talking to one of the guys from R* Bondi well thats not the story they tell.

The thumbs down...cute gesture. Pushtrak, it is a reality. What exclusives have you played for the PS3? Have you played Uncharted 1 and 2? How about Heavy Rain? LittleBigPlanet anyone? Folklore? Killzone 2? What about Infamous? Maybe MGS4 GotP? These games are extremely well polished and are truly stunning pieces of art. I mean have you seen a GOW3 trailer, the most recent one, its visuals are simply amazing! Did you even play the demo? If this isn't enough proof then you are simply in denial and there's no way of convincing...no not convincing, displaying to you the polish of these aforementioned games. Me, I 'm not one to follow suit, I'll accept something for what it is despite the hype or gravity effect. My eyes tell me that the PS3 is the more capable and the games stated previously are the proof. Now if you want to compare some 360 games to these games I just mentioned, go ahead. I doubt however, the success of this mission.

I have played Uncharted, haven't gotten around to 2 yet. I played some Resistance 2 but wasn't that big a fan of it.

And Killzone 2 I played a small bit of, basically up to that stupid part where they had you use the crank by means of shaking the controller. Tacked on gimmick which was stupidly added. There are some games where I approve of how motion control was done. Okami on the Wii, Resident Evil 4 on the Wii.

I loved Metal Gear Solid 4.

I avoided Folklore because I heard terrible things about it.

Never played a previous God of War game, so I wouldn't bother looking too much into the third game in that series.

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus were very hard games to find here so I never go the opportunity to play them. If they were rereleased for PS3 or hell, even the simple act of releasing them on PSN I'd get them. And then I'd be hyped more for The Last Guardian, I guess.

Despite having cleared it on the 360 though, its usually Modern Warfare 2 I end up playing most on the PS3 going through the campaign/spec ops.

Oh, I just noticed, that thumbs down you got wasn't from me. I tried thumbing you down there, and it went to 2. So, obviously that thumb bandit was someone other than myself. I'll give you a thumbs up, and should I need to prove the thumbs down I can change it per your request.
