Re: Machinima mo-cap for Halo 5

In Response To: Machinima mo-cap for Halo 5 (scarab)

: OK 343 need to restore the lost features that Bungie gave us in Halo 3 and
: Reach.

: But, of course, they need new stuff too. You can never stand still :-)

: This was front paged. They used Kinects to do basic motion capture for the
: Halo 4 cutscenes. Could a version of this be bundled with the game for
: budding machinemanistas*?

: Even if you need two boxes with Kinect and an ethernet cable it should still
: be within the reach of a fair proportion of the Halo population. It would
: be like a LAN party for machinima makers. Big room plus 2 360s, sprinkle
: in some calibration and there you go. (He said waving his arms around.)

: * what is the word for a machinima maker?

As a Tennessean I vote for 'Machinimean'.

Also, to think that those capabilities are in the game system with Kinect is pretty amazing, but I would think to make a user-friendly piece of software within the Halo game would be pretty cost/time consuming. Maybe if they outsourced it to C.A. it would be amazing though and add to C.A.'s impressive list of accomplishments as they build their portfolio for their future AAA title?
