Infamous: Second Son Video: Watch Mocap Bring Delsin to Life
PlayStation has posted a new video on its YouTube channel that shows us how Sucker Punch uses the magic of mocap in Infamous: Second Son in order to really capture the emotion in the actors’ performance and then translate it into the game.
We get to see Troy Baker, voice of BioShock Infinite’s Booker DeWitt, with a bunch of mocap balls on his face as he delivers a performance that will bring the character of Delsin to life.
We’re shown how the PlayStation 4′s new hardware allows for greater renders of facial animations, so that we can see even more details in a character’s face and how it contorts.
Nuances and micro-movements are the big buzz words here, and it’s exciting to see how advances in technology and graphics help to convey even more emotion from the characters we embody in a game, thereby fleshing out the experience.
Watch the video above and let us know your thoughts on all of the mocap madness in Infamous: Second Son.
