Motion capture specialists Animazoo supply games development giants Ubisoft

Animazoo, the motion capture specialists, have announced that they will be supplying the IGS-180, a full body wireless motion capture system, to Ubisoft® the major games development company.

Ubisoft are a company that has become famous through producing highly popular games franchises, and these include Ghost Recon® and Assassins Creed®.

Following comprehensive testing, Ubisoft have decided that Animazoo are good partners for their forthcoming projects, which includes Assassins Creed III: Liberation – which has been designed exclusively to be used with the Playstation Vita console.

Ivan Balabanov, MD of Ubisoft Sofia, said that the Animazoo IGS-180 mocap package was a good solution for the company, and that, in terms of the pipeline,Ubisoft had been saved a great amount of time because of its design.

Helpful features, according to Balabanov, include motion tracking that is centredaround a gyroscope. Balabanov added that the animation pipeline is boosted because the gyro-based solution does not result in the bad effects of occlusion, which could be coming from the body parts of an actor, or by other actors, as well as props. This means that the need to manually correct or keyframe occluded body parts is removed.

The recording of a mocap session is enhanced by the use of the gyro and the transmission of data via wi-fi, including the actor and the recording stage. Balabanov added that there was no limit on space, regarding the recording area, apart from the range that wi-fi connections have, which were quite “significant.” Balabanov is confident that these features will make it easy to record, with little preparation needed at the beginning of the process of recording, whether for recordings indoors or outdoors.

Finally, Balabanov commented on how easy the IGS-180 is to both set up and use. He also acknowledged the great support from the Animazoo company in every area of the process, which has resulted in a the IGS-180 being integrated quickly and efficiently into the company’s animation pipeline.

Mark Lewis, who is the Animazoo Head of Sales EMEA, said that he was “thrilled” that Ubisoft had joined the list of existing animators and games development studios that were already using technology provided by Animazoo. Lewis said that Animazoo will be “working closely” with Ubisoft to help them become successful through the use ofAnimazoo’s inertial motion capture systems, though while not losing the cutting edge that has brought success to Ubisoft in the first place.

The New Game Tsunami Is Coming, Record Your Awesome Moments With Bandicam, Fraps Alternative Software

The New Game tsunami is coming, record your awesome moments with Bandicam, Fraps Alternative software

The new game tsunami is coming with a host of new and upcoming games such as Skyrim which was released in the middle of November 2011. Gamers all around the world are enjoying this astonishing game and also waiting for the next big releases like Diablo III, Grand Theft Auto V, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City to name a few.

These days, gamers are not just playing in front of a TV or a computer. Some of them meet new friends and chat with strangers in the game. Some people record their awesome gameplays and upload their commentary videos on YouTube. Some of them become YouTube stars because of their gameplay videos.

If you want to record XBOX 360 or PlayStation 3 gameplay, you need a capture card and game recording software. However, if you want to record your gameplay on PC, you just need a game recording program like Fraps.

Fraps is one of the most popular game recording software among game users. Fraps can record the original gameplay by DirectX and OpenGL hooking technology, so the video quality is better than other software.

Despite the high video quality, it has 2 problems.

One problem of this software is that it only can record DirectX/OpenGL programs; it can’t record non-DirectX/OpenGL programs like flash or java games. Another problem of this software is a big file size. If you record for a minute, the file size might be around 1GB. Imagine! When you try to upload a minute video onto YouTube, it may take a very long time to upload the whole video. To avoid these problems, some people are trying to findFraps alternative software.

Bandicam is a good alternative to Fraps because it records not only the DirectX/OpenGL programs like Fraps but also it can record anything on your PC screen including flash/java games. In addition, Bandicam compresses the video when recording, so the recorded file size is much smaller than Fraps without any loss of video quality.

As a result, gamers can get a high quality gameplay video and a reduced video file size due to the video compressing technology from Bandicam

Why don’t you record your awesome moments and figure out which game recording software is better.

It has focused mostly on publishing related software products, starting f r o m Wordwise, a hugely popular Word Processor in the ’80s, to desktop publishing software (Impression) and graphics products in the ’90s for the Acorn RISC computer. Xara’s first Windows product, Xara Studio, was quickly snapped up and marketed by Corel in the late ’90s as CorelXara. The rights were acquired back f r o m Corel and it has since evolved into Xara X and the most recent Xara Xtreme. Xara has a particularly strong technology and innovation history. It pioneered many of the graphics technologies and techniques used by the industry today. It was the first to introduce vector anti-aliasing, the first with vector transparency and graduated transparency and the first with vector feathering. Many of its User Interface techniques have been adopted by the industry. The graphics engine that is at the core of Xara Xtreme still remains the world’s most powerful. In January, 2007, Xara Ltd was acquired by Magix AG f r o m Berlin, Germany. The company now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary.

Quadstone Paramics Have Developed And Released The World’s First Pedestrian And Traffic Interaction Simulation Software

In a world first, the experts behind the hugely popular Quadstone Paramics range have announced a new, unique software application. The Urban Analytics Framework (UAF) is the first commercially available micro simulation tool that fully integrates pedestrians and vehicles in the same model. The UAF is a groundbreaking product that combines pedestrian-based spatial analysis and Quadstone Paramics’ award-winning traffic micro simulation.

The UAF has been built on the foundations of a successful partnership with Crowd Dynamics, a global authority on pedestrian behaviour modeling. It was officially launched earlier this month and licenses have already been sold – demonstrating how the industry has been eagerly awaiting such a high-tech product.

One major selling point is that the UAF does not require pedestrian Origin-Destination data, which is costly and almost impossible to obtain. Another considerable advantage over the few fledgling offerings in this sector is that the UAF offers full seamless integration with Quadstone Paramics traffic modeling software.

Richard Millington, managing director at Quadstone Paramics, “In developing the UAF we have reacted to an extensive market pull as government agencies of all sizes look to promote pedestrians as a more attractive means of transportation.”

“The car is no longer king,” continues Millington, “and encouraging more people to leave their cars at home leads to less traffic in urban areas. Pedestrian safety must be top of the list for all authorities, town planners and architects. The UAF allows users to develop spaces where pedestrian-vehicle interaction is conducted in the safest, most efficient way possible.”

The rationale behind the use of this new software is ‘Dumb people, smart space’ – meaning the space has the intelligence and prompts people on how to behave safely, rather than requiring them to make decisions independently. The UAF is powerful yet intuitive to use, and offers a wide range of analysis measurements along with a sophisticated 3D graphical presentation capability. It is a completely integrated platform that provides user-friendly, seamless interaction between traffic and pedestrian components at all levels. It represents the most comprehensive analytics range available and is scalable at all levels – from single intersections through to wide area city modeling.

Designed by engineers for engineers, the UAF is the ideal tool for evaluating both existing areas and new proposed developments, such as retail space, sports stadiums and public transport terminals, and is especially useful for performing evacuation studies. Several high-profile authorities around the world are showing an interest in the software, with new projects already commencing. More information can be found on their Pedestrian Simulation website.

  • Groundbreaking micro simulation that fully integrates pedestrians and vehicles in the same model
  • Cost-cutting and time-saving technology that eliminates the need for pedestrian Origin-Destination data
  • Seamless integration with Quadstone Paramics traffic modeling software
  • Licenses already sold as industry demand soars

About Quadstone Paramics

Quadstone Paramics has driven the innovation agenda for traffic microsimulation modelling software since the early 1990’s. With over 1000 user companies in 45 countries, their software tools have been deployed on some of the World’s highest profile projects, by a broad mix of Federal, State and Local Government Agencies along with consulting engineering firms of all sizes.

Operating autonomously as part of a London Stock Market listed company, Quadstone Paramics continues to address the changing demands of the Global Market through offices in the UK and the United States, along with resellers in Australia, Europe and Asia.

The culmination of over 6 man years of development, the launch of the Urban Analytics Framework Software from Quadstone Paramics brings vastly improved levels of software capability to transportation and pedestrian modelers the world over.
