Quantum Break: Locomotion and Cut-scene Animation

April 5, 2016

Quantum Break is a 2016 video-game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios. It heavily features the performances of Lord of the Rings' Dominic Monaghan and Aidan Gillen of Game of Thrones fame.

In the cut-scenes of this Xbox One exclusive title we focused at processing the motion capture data and recognizing subtle nuances in the actors' performances that were not picked up by the motion capture technology. In a polish pass we re-created these actions by hand and included them in the global animation. Upon this successful cooperation the game's developer entrusted us also with locomotions of the game's protagonist.
