Is it a crime to try and learn the truth? Is it a sin to search for those things which you fear. My purpose in this world is knowledge, and the dissemination of it. And it is I who is to restore the fruits of my labor to the entire world. Fear... It is something vital to us puny creatures. The instant man stop fearing is the instant the species reaches a dead end, only to sink to pitiable lows, only to sit and wait apathetically for extinction. Humans who lose the ability to think become creatures whose existance has no value. Wake up! Don't be afraid of knowledge! Think, you humans who are split into two worlds, unless you want the gulf between humans to expand into oblivian, you must think! Signed, Schwarzwald.
This may be in the Vocaloid Concert. I certainly hope it is.
I love her hair!I wonder if that was cleaned up mo-cap? Her hands look a little off, but the animation is pretty good!
I love her hair!
the game, I believe, was motion capture + further editing
The year before they used Miku Miku Dance to put on the concert.
WTF. Anime Expo has separate ticketing for concerts, and it's not free? What the fuck.
Compare that with Otakon, who basically has no significant pre-reg or early bird discount.

And I think it's motion capture, choreographic with a real person and then adding a big ass render farm to make the video is the only sane way I can imagine.
I've seen some pretty killer animators in my day
Also, motion capture is not simple - Sometimes, mo-cap clean up can take just as much time as manual pose driven stuff.
It's just the more sane thing to do imho.
