Virtual Actor Studio opens doors after two months of refurbishments

Quantic Dream has officially reopened its ‘Virtual Actor Studio’ motion-capture facility after renovating the site.

The facility, now equipped with 64 optical cameras, captures facial and body movement and voice acting simultaneously, allowing for what the studio has called the highest possible degree of precision.

Renovations on the studio took two months, and included the purchase of a T160 Vicon system and the instillation of soundproof curtains around the main stage.

"We are very excited about the new possibilities at hand with our new Mocap stage” said co-studio CEO Guillaume de Fondaumière.

“Motion Capture is the most cost efficient way to produce high quality animations, and with this new system we are able to offer our clients a service on par with the best available facilities in the World.

“Capturing actors’ complete performance in a single take with high fidelity is essential to render the highly realistic 3D characters people expect nowadays in high-definition games and movies, and that is precisely what our new studio can deliver on."
