Last week we were sitting around the office wondering if it would be possible to place ourselves in a game world with Mixamo’s Auto-Rigging tool to create a rigged avatar. Then we could be running around a level in front of our Kinect as ourselves.
Sadly it never went past stage one. It’s harder than you might think to hold a T-pose for 3 minutes while someone circles you twice snapping pictures at 10 degree intervals.
I don’t have any pictures of the results; I came out looking like the elephant man. We’ll probably try again at some point, but in the meantime I made another scan of a pair of static objects that was turning out pretty good until I got to the back of the monkey.ImageGrab. Which is way easier than snapping individual pictures.
I wonder if I could generate 3d art for a game jam…
