I’m looking into doing a project that is 100% animated but I want to use real actors to workout the scenes… in a way that would allow me to choose camera angles later in most cases.
Bear in mind that this is a low budget project… for a price range my current project (DV feature drama) is around $10,000 but I would preferr to keep software in the GPL domain.
Right now in my newbieness I an thinking of using 3-5 video cameras basically one on each side except bottom and cover the actors with markers at joints, etc. with something like colored masking tape…
It boils down to that I would then need something that can plot the motion of those markers so I can attach the 3D character.
