Swiftball is a new soccer game imagined by Olivier Gueroult in 2013. It’s an innovating variant of the soccer game involving 8 players freely teaming and opposing in an octagonal arena. To introduce Swiftball to the general public Oscar B Studio did a teaser video to explain more about this inventive and tactical new sport:
The animated video was created using the Xsens MVN motion capture system. The animations are non-stop technical soccer moves and this would have been quite challenging using classical methods. Xsens MVN allowed to capture all poses and actions of a professionally skilled soccer player. The data was used to animate all three 3D characters created for the project. The result was accurate and dynamic representation of the game.
