Testimonial from Lu Ramos - iAnimate Motion Capture student

Lu Ramos testimony

Why did you enroll in our motion capture workshop in the first place?

Truth be told, I was hesitant to enroll into the Motion Capture Workshop at first. I spoke with Richard Arroyo, Head of Game Animation, about my troubles with body mechanics. He helped me see that working with MoCap would really help me learn and understand motion better, and was he right!

Are you enjoying the workshop so far? Is it what you expected? What did you learn that you didn't expect?

I have done a great deal of online learning and this workshop is by far one of the best experiences I have had yet! Having Brent George as an instructor with great energy, knowledge and teaching experience has made the workshop all the more enjoyable!

The workshop turned out better than I expected. It really showcases not just how to use MotionBuilder as another animation tool, but also how to use my animation knowledge and experience to shape the data into something unique and fun!

I didn't expect to learn so much these short fourteen weeks! I learned how to extract key poses from data, blend entirely different motions together seamlessly, and create game animation loops! The is so much cool stuff you can do with MoCap, its crazy!
