"Eadweard James Muybridge (/ˌɛdwərd ˈmaɪbrɪdʒ/; 9 April 1830 – 8 May 1904) was an English photographer important for his pioneering work in photographic studies of motion and in motion-picture projection. He adopted the name Eadweard Muybridge, believing it to be the original Anglo-Saxon form of his name."
IR is slowly ushering in a new form of studying human motion, something for the 21st Century. This video showcases some early prototype testing of the concept of 4D scanning. The idea of scanning human subjects, over time. Known as 4D, or Videogrammetry.
The animation is choppy, because the model was scanned very slowly over a period of time, similar to stop motion animation. RAW scans from Agisoft using the new dense point cloud process. 250k per frame. Around 2 million polygons on screen at once, per frame. 4K texture. 4 textures per shader. COL, “A,OC,C”, SPC, NM.
This process once perfected will offer incredible opportunities for motion vision research and motion capture. Not only can the data be used to study human movement, fat rolling / sliding, muscle movement, tendon twitching, skin colour changes etc The data can also be used as motion capture to drive other rigs. It offers dual purpose, far more advanced than traditional motion capture.
