Avatar, Performance Capture

I had a chance to see Avatar this evening and was blown away at what James Cameron has done to evolve the art of motion capture. Anyone who has seen the film would agree that the bar has been moved higher in capturing not only the physical motions but also the full range of emotional power of the actors and overlaying it  seamlessly onto the animated characters.

The clip below how a whole suite of new technology came together to create what they call, Performance Capture.
