Artanim is a non-profit foundation dedicated to the development and promotion of motion capture. This technology allows recording the movements of a real actor in order to apply them to a virtual character. It can be used in numerous projects and industries. In particular, the foundation conducts three types of activities linked to motion capture:
Unfortunately small production companies have limited access to motion capture. As one of the largest motion capture centers in Switzerland, Artanim hopes to make this technology more accessible and encourage its use in various audiovisual content. The foundation also develops cultural events where motion capture can be used to create new expression and interaction modes.
