Motion Capture and Care Packages

Hello Everyone,

The season of the cherry blossoms is here, and as the flowers bloom and rain their pink petals across Japan, Shenmue III turns forward, making progress and new friends. 

The Moves  

First, the big news this month is that the motion capture system testing has begun! We have a couple of pics here to get things started.  

Right now we are testing out one of motion capture systems to see which one will give the best fit. The pics below are from the test of a new motion tracking system by Xsens. The system is highly responsive with little noise interference, making the process go very smoothly. When the finalist has been chosen, we will be sure to let you know in a future update.  

Mo’ mo-cap coming up, so stay here!  

The Mail  

Again we want to thank everyone for constant support. It is always a pleasure to get your messages of encouragement and to see the community growing ever larger. The mail has been overflowing lately, and we would like to share some of it with you today. 

  •  Show of support for Shenmue III from Bajiquan Grandmaster Wu Lian Zi 
  •  Embroidery of a shenmue tree with tree swing
  • Guilin cormorant fishers in their boat. Their clothing is of the Ming era. 
  • A gorgeous water color of Ryo and Iwao.  
  •  Friendship picture. The inscribed character means “friends.” 

 And finally, we have a repost of the images from the MAGIC. Many of you have asked us for better quality files for sharing. We thank you for the feedback, and hope these make the cut.
