Jasper Brekelmans has released the next version of his application, Brekel Kinect Pro Body. Markerless motion capture using the second version of Microsoft’s Kinect Sensor. For $150 (for the sensor) and another $139 (for the app) you can do pretty good mocap. I’m really impressed by the camera having the resolution for the fingers.
New fluid sim software, Project Proteus, currently in private beta.
FX Guide has a new podcast out, this one’s about the Digital Human League.
Really nice breakdown for this commercial, Freeze the World, by Bleed VFX.
