International VFX leader The Moving Picture Company (MPC) has bestowed its creative wizardry upon the media and entertainment industry for the past 25 years. The venerated studio is experienced in concept design, previs, shoot supervision, 2D compositing, 3D/CG effects, animation, motion design, software development, virtual production, color grading and any amalgamation thereof. To support these activities, MPC relies on an 18-camera OptiTrack motion capture system, which the studio recently supplemented with Prime 17W cameras and Motive software. Overseen by Global Head of Crowd Simulation and Motion Capture Adam Davis and located in MPC’s London headquarters, the setup is leveraged by MPC facilities worldwide, including in Vancouver, Montreal, Los Angeles, New York, Amsterdam, Bangalore and Mexico City.
“OptiTrack’s Prime 17W camera has a phenomenally wide angle and captures high fidelity data. We had good coverage before but now we have floor to ceiling volume, and we can capture finger data and fine details,” said Davis.
MPC executed its first transatlantic motion capture shoot for Man of Steel – a project led by its Vancouver office.
With the addition of the Prime 17W cameras and Motive software, MPC is now deploying motion capture for more prominent hero shots as well, including three upcoming blockbusters that are poised to storm the box office.
MPC is currently working on Godzilla, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Amazing Spiderman 2, Maleficent and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
