Default Dragon Commander - The Cost of Dialogue #2

April 3rd, 2012, 01:33
Larian shows off their trademark humour with a humorous unboxing video of some mocap equipment that will be used for Dragon Commander. Worth a quick look for a laugh.
This video accompanies a new blog post from Swen Vincke where he looks at the extraordinary cost of facial capture that lead to the decision to buy their own equipment. From The Cost of Dialogues #2:
The decision to do it this way came after checking plenty of other solutions, ranging from trying to set something up oursevles with Kinect devices (cheapest) to hiring simultanous body & facial capture studios (most expensive).
The latter had prices in the range of $1000 to $2000 per minute which would cost us between 0,5M US$ to 1M US$. I actually contemplated this for some time, but then decided against it. I figured that in the end wed be best served if we could come up with a homebrewn solution, even if that causes a bit more pain and might in the short term not give us the highest quality solution.
Thanks, Alrik!
More information.
