Oxford studio used for chart-topping game's motion capture

Oxford-based motion capture expert Audiomotion has detailed its role in the making of PlayStation 3 exclusive Killzone 2.

Offering a suite of 130 Vicon MX40+ cameras, Audiomotion delivered all of the performance capture for the cutscenes and over 5000 in-game animations for the first-person-shooter.

“We are delighted to share in the wonderful success of Killzone 2 with our friends at Guerilla," said Audiomotion's managing director. "The team and the game they have delivered are absolutely deserving of the high praise they are receiving. It’s an amazing achievement and we look forward to more groundbreaking collaboration with them in the years to come.”

Geert Donker, producer at Guerrilla Games added: “Throughout the production of Killzone 2, Audiomotion proved once again to be a reliable and flexible partner. They have shown a formidable willingness to facilitate our needs, and their great team of artists ensured animation of impeccable quality.

“While Killzone 2 is pushing every limit on the Playstation 3, Audiomotion had no difficulties meeting our requirements. Supporting us creatively and technically, they went above and beyond the call of duty. Audiomotion are a joy to work with.”
