Pascal Langdaleâ??s Motives in Movement enters mo-cap film industry

Pascal Langdale, the star of Quantic Dream title Heavy Rain, has launched a motion capture company called Motives in Movement.

The company claims to use a new method of generating and re-using mo-cap narrative film for games based on character behavior. MIM say this can cut mo-cap costs by around 30%.

The new technology is based around catagorising behavior, and producing pre-filmed reaction and expression libraries which can be inserted into later scenes to reduce filming times and increase the available footage for individual narrative moments.
