The latest on Halo Wars: mocap goodness
It's been a long time coming (and we're a week late getting to it), but the latest update on Halo Wars has finally arrived. Posted on the Halo Wars forums, the update centers around a recent motion capture session (mocap to the kids). The makers of Halo Wars set up some test sessions with an LA motion capture studio, House of Moves, to see if mocap could be beneficial to Halo Wars. So, several actors were set up with light reflecting ping pong balls and asked to re-enact scenes from the game. They even set up a plywood warthog and gave the actors some crazy stilts to emulate the way Elites walk. See more pictures after the break.
As far as motion capture is concerned, this is what a warthog looks like.
You'll need some of these if you want to walk like an Elite. Hopefully, it won't be too long before we get some more Halo Wars news. Hit the "read link" for the full update and more pictures.
