Creating Sculptures from 2D Videos
4 monthes ago - By Gurney Journey
Animators, athletes, and dancers need to study and understand complex motions. But even when you review video footage, it can be hard to see exactly what's going on with all the moving parts traveling in three dimensions.
MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has developed an algorithm called MoSculpt that creates a detailed 3D model of a broad movement.
The input can be a simple 2D video of a person in motion. The subject doesn't have to be fitted with mo-cap markers and they don't have to be shot in front of blank backgrounds.
The software lets you choose various...
