Motion Capture by using KINECT

my first motion capture test by using a KINECT device.

I have used 3ds Max 2011, MotionBuilder 2012 and Brekel Kinect v0.44 during this test.

I hope to use this knowledge for developing better character animations for UDK and Unity 3D games.

Thanks to:
Jasper Brekelmans for Brekel Kinect v0.44 application
Reuben Fleming for Motion Capture Tutorials.

Simple UDK game test

Player tries to jump from one platform to another while platforms are moving. On last platform there is a portal which completes the game. Main objective for this test is “activating an external secondary camera at some point of the game – in this case it’s at the end of the game”
