COSC 20 Motion Study: Using Motion Analysis for Science, Art and Medicine
Motion Capture is the process of recording movement in physical space and transforming that information into a digital form that can be analyzed and adapted. Recent technological advances have increased the use of motion capture in movies, cartoon animation, and scientific applications. In this class, students will learn the foundations of this new field from basic anatomical principles of motion to how motions express a variety of human qualities (e.g., status, emotion). Students will work with a motion capture system to record and analyze their own movement to gain a hands-on understanding of how motion capture can enhance art and science.
