I posted last month about the solution media company that will be implementing a Real-time animation studio in Nigeria, which happens to be the first of its kind in West Africa. If you missed the post, Click HERE.
Well, finally its here. Watch the SMIL 3D Motion Capture, Animation Facility Tour video below.
According to SMIL, the need to be more expressive in video production led to the innovative adaptation of the 3D video technology for film production, games etc... Over the years, this technology has developed drastically and has become a production need for graphic detailing of scenes in movies and visual effects, the major element that has created the great divide between HollyWood/BollyWood and NollyWood and the rest of Africa.
In an attempt to bridge this gap, Solution Media and Infotech Ltd is proud to be the pioneer in bringing a full Motion Capture/Animation Studio into Africa. It's here and it's in Lagos, a full motion capture studio that caters for full body motion and facial expression with the very best of motion capture facilities as it is available in hollywood.
The unveiling of the 3D Animation and Motion Capture facility recently acquired and installed by SMIL was held at 32/35 Coker Road, Ilupeju, Lagos on Tuesday, 26th February 2013.
The installation comprises of latest and new Motion Capture equipment (24 units of Prime 41 motion capture cameras and 7 Flex 13 cameras) for body movements and facial expressions respectively, for the purpose of animating models for Video production.
