The Digital Gramophone Project is an investigation of 3D Photography techniques. The object ‘gramophone’ was chosen to be virtualized, through a 3D scanner, because of its complexity and conceptual value.
Muan is an open source stop motion animation system developed under Linux. It was conceived by ANIMA MUNDI and developed by the team of VISGRAF Laboratory, with the sponsorship of IBM.
Muan Reloaded is the Multi-Platform version of MUAN. The software provides an useful GUI allowing creation, editing, manipulation and visualization of animations through a video camera under MacOS, Windows or Linux.
This project is an application that lets puppeteers make performances with nothing but their hands. It aims to preserve the expressiveness and know-how of classic puppeteering, but at the same time, to look at it with a different perspective with the help of expanded reality.
The project studies techniques to improve the quality of motion captured data, We have implemented a prototype of an animation system which is based on MoCap. This software works with motion captured data, and provides tools for motion analysis, manipulation and reuse.
Motion Capture (MoCap) is the process of capturing the movement of a real object and mapping it onto a computer generated object. This portal presents a selection of Motion Capture databases, which are part of projects that have been developed at the VISGRAF Lab.
