After much procrastination, I am starting mocap shoots for the crowd scenes in the film. My goal will be to capture small segments of animation (e.g. walks, characters sitting, etc) that I can blend together to create different crowd people. I hope to use Massive to achieve this blending, but given my lack of progress at learning the software, I may just have to do all of this in Motion Builder and Maya (i.e. create the scene by hand, instead of relying on Massive's AI).
I compiled a reel of crowd shots from 'Gandhi' and 'Water' to help me figure out what I need.
