ILM UPGRADES MOTION-CAPTURE TECHNOLOGY

The upgraded system is already in place at the facility's campus at the recently-opened Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco. The install includes 40 of the four million-pixel Vicon MX40 motion capture cameras.

ILM's history using Vicon motion capture technology dates back to 1996, when it took delivery of the 370e optical motion capture solution. The studio has used Vicon gear in the creation of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, as well as on The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.
