I brought this up in a thread a while back, and I got to thinking about it. I read about the Creature Shop trying to blend CGI and puppetry by using the Henson control system. I think the mosquitoes in MTI were performed like this. For those that are unfamiliar with it, the Henson control enables one puppeteer to work a character by coordinating the character's movements. For instance to get an animatronic character to frown before the system came about, one puppeteer would control the eyebrows (perhaps even one per brow,) one would control the mouth, someone else would wrinkle the nose, etc. The Henson system lets one performer move a joystick to a "frown" position, and then its computer coordinates the facial movements. Someone thought that since the computer was coordinating those movements, the signals could be sent to a cgi renderer and create a "live" cgi character that can interact with others (via a monitor.) So has anyone seen or heard anymore about it? BTW, Buck, how's your project going along this line?
