Computer Motion Capture, or ‘Mo-Cap’ for short, is the process of recording the movement and actions of human performers digitally and then that coded information in a computer programme to animate 2D or 3D character models. This process is also sometimes called 'Performance Capture', especially when recording face movements to create a more subtle expression. Both ‘Motion Capture’ and ‘Performance Capture’ should be distinguished ‘Computer Generated Imagery’, or CGI, where computer graphics are used to create or contribute to background images or objects in video games and other simulated media.
