The Best Motion Capture Session Ever

The Best Motion Capture Session Ever

image

As the release of Deadly Creatures nears, developer Rainbow Studios has released a video of the "scorpion motion capture," a danger-fraught session that demonstrates just how far they're willing to go to make the best bug-based action adventure game the world has ever seen. (It's also really funny.)

Curious about how the developers of Deadly Creatures were able to render scorpion animations so realistically? It turns out that getting a scorpion into motion-capture gear is a tricky proposition, but what's bad for Rainbow Studios (and a poor team member named Jordan) is good, and hilarious, for us.

Okay, so it's not exactly "real." It's still the funniest thing you're likely to see all day. And you can't tell me you're not even a little bit curious about a scorpion in a mo-cap suit.

Check it out here.

Not bad.

I still think Bizarre Creation's mo-cap feature for Geometry Wars 2 was better, though. ;)

Damn that was funny!

Deadly Creatures actually doesn't look half bad. I won't pay full price for it, but if I find it reduced in half a year or so I'll give it a try.

Seems cool, to bad I ain't got a Wii

I'm intrigued in this game. It looks like lote of fun, in a simple way.

Poor hand...

Aww. I wanted them to mo-cap a real one!

Haha, that was awesome, it made my day.

Funny video, shame the game is Wii-only.

I don't think you notice the scorpion part of it, scorpion's tend to be...you know deadly. Not to mention how much of a bitch it'd be top put the mo-cap things on it and not get stung, still the animation is cool.

Sorry but the Jackass game motion capture is THE best. Undebateable.

Only smaller scorpions are "deadly". Large scorpions like this one probably wouldn't kill you.

Ok fine lets see you get the balls to put Mo-Cap thing's on a large scorpion.

Notice how it's the size of an adult human hand? Yeah I'd be to scary to go near that thing, let alone put motion capture things on that, scary as shit...

I consider that a "Big scorpion". I doubt anyone in that work-line would be ballsy enough to go near that thing.

Can't you just put it to sleep or something like that?

The video was still really funny.

I would not go near that mother-fu**er no matter how asleep it would be.

They should of gotten a professional handler of scorpions.(I.E. someone with no fear and probably kicks sand off land-mines for fun).

Somebody like Steve Irwin? Oh wait...

That is horrible of you to say, just plain horrible!
Seriously that's sad and a joke in bad taste.

It's no different than picking up a tarantula or a snake and involves about the same amount of risk.

All of which are scary as all fuck!
I think you missed the point of my post my good friend, but for my knowledge what was the point of yours?

Further More...

This game will scare the fuck through me if it has massive spiders and such.

Well, you said that scorpions are deadly, I was just saying they aren't.

But yeah, they are all very scary. Except snakes, I love snakes ^-^

Well a good chunk of scorpions are deadly, but the big ones that aren't poisonous are scary as all f*ck, also snakes scare the shit through me.

Gah! I really hate sounding like a smart ass but please don't demonize scorpions. The vast majority of them aren't poisonous, and most of them will just run away from you anyway. This doesn't mean you shouldn't be cautious of course, just keep an open mind.

I don't think you know this but...

I live in Australia For those of you who don't know in Australia the vast majority of snakes,(well not really snakes) Scorpions, Jelly fish and basically anything else is either scary, poisonous or both. (Usually both) In Canada (Where you are from) I doubt you have that problem.

I don't own a Wii but this looks like a nice, original concept. It may not be the greatest game, but I'm glad to hear about a game that decided on a new concept.

That is the funniest video I have seen all day. It kinda reminds me of Unskippable.

He glues together a couple of crickets and the scorpion is all like 'Get that fucking monster away from me'

that video was hysterical. "Hey Jordan we need your hand again" "No way man, f*ck off!"

Dude, they have bears in Canada, which are just as dangerous as your outback critters but also adorable. A much deadlier combo! ~
So cut off the QQ!!!1
(j/k, glad to live where I live, although I have a viscious housecat at home.)

.. Now I wanna see a bear in a mocap suit tearing poor Jordan apart.
Well maybe for the sequel Far superior huge predators with fur.
