The clip above was created with the help of the PlayStation Move. Here is how it’s done:
Each clip was shot in one take, the visual effects created using a mixture of props, live actors camouflaged in Lycra and, crucially, the technique of projective mapping – projecting backgrounds plus animation onto the environment, in this case the walls, furniture and other surfaces in the room.
To look realistic, the images being projected have to be distorted to suit the geometry of the “screen”, and the viewpoint must be stationary. But Studio Output wanted to capture the results using a roving camera. That was where the PlayStation Move played a key role. Studio Output attached it to their camera and used it to track its movements. The readings were then fed back to a system which adapted the projected image in real time, making the backgrounds dazzlingly convincing throughout each clip.
Pretty amazing stuff I must say and they haven’t even pushed it to the limits yet. They envision that this could one day evolve into a augmented reality experience. This sounds like true next generation technology. What are your thoughts on this?
We’ve already gotten ports of Dead Space Extraction and House of the Dead: Overkill… so now it’s time to bring two more on rails shooters to PS3! CAPCOM has just announced that ports of both Resident Evil Chronicles games will be given HD ports with Move support (well… duh!) for release at an unspecified date.
I already own ALL of the games mentioned in this post but for those of you that have yet to try any of these fine, fine games… what do you think about all the Wii to PS3 ports lately?
We can now see what Child of Eden will bring to the PS3 when it releases on September 27 (yes, this IS a retail product). What has changed from the 360 SKU? Well, this has 3D support and is now Move compatible which should make all you 3D TV AND Move owners very, very happy!
