DmC mocap filmed at Avatar studio

Wednesday, 11 January 2012 22:49 GMT By Brenna Hillier

For DmC, Ninja Theory turned to the film studio and crew behind James Cameron’s Avatar.

“It was invigorating to shoot the scenes for the game in the same place as the Avatar shoot, using the same studios and much of the same crew,” Ninja Theory’s Dominic Matthews told BusinessWeekly.

“On projects like these you get to work with people who really know what they are doing. It’s a great buzz to have people who worked on Avatar work on DmC. They bring a cinematic perspective to what you are trying to do.”

The Cambridge-based developer has gained a reputation for solid motion capture in its recent games, and utilises its own tech in addition to that used by films like Avatar.

“We are fortunate to have developed our own facial solver technology in house that allows us to track these movements and map them onto our models. Our technology is unique and something that we’ve been working on for several years, so we are ahead of the market in this regard,” Matthews said.

“We do this to ensure that we’re bringing the true performances of our actors through into the game. It’s not so much about realism but believability. Real actors – real people – move their hands and their body when they speak. We track the exact movement of our actors. We have 60 markers on their faces alone – on their eyes, their eyebrows, their mouths, their noses, their lips and so on.”

DmC is expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year.

Thanks, Capcom Unity.

    I really don’t see the logic in this ‘reboot’, there was nothing wrong with Devil May Cry before they decided to just give up on an unfinished story.

    But there is seriously a lot wrong with the dev and the game itself, the guns have a cooldown period because apparently people played dmc as if it was a third person shooter… Heck just watch this guy

    @1:

    And people wonder why Developers don’t take so called “Fans” serious.

    Get over yourself.

    There was plenty of wrong with DMC. Resident Evil is a prime example of where Capcom goes with their franchises: Nowhere. Story doesn’t go anywhere, they just add stuff and hope people forget previous plotholes.

    @4 i totally agree with you. @2 please shut it… Play the first 3 devil may cry’s, and then come talk. This new DMC is a disgrace to the fan and to gaming… And to the original franchise… And no we shouldn’t just accept and eat shit… If that’s what you want to do, then go ahead. Don’t expect people to follow you though… At lest true fans of the original Devil May Cry wont. I really hate people that talk about something they have no freaking idea about.

    AVATAR STUDIO Mo CAP is of course the MOST important part for the DMC Game. Ninja Theory at it’s best. Facial animation first, gameplay is the last thing.

    @2, Resident Evil was not about the story.

    If you have problem with Japanese game design, just shut up then.
    Who said that Capcom does not know where to go with Resident Evil? Just because you see the shitty SOCOM studio making RES does not mean that Resident Evil 6 is not in development.

    Capcom used two shitty studios to make their franchises that can appeal to younger western audience. Slant Six Games and NT. Both are bad in everything. Period. Both will have shitty score on metacritic and from gamers.

    @4: Like i said, there was plenty wrong with DMC. I don’t understand why people are so offended that Ninja Theory states the obvious. Dante was never cool, always douchy and ridiculous.

    I also love how you miss your own point.

    @6: Played them all. Remember when i saw the first screenshot in a gaming magazine and thought: Man this looks like an awesome game.

    And it was, but the more the series developed (Played all of them, lost interest half-way through #4), the less it was interesting. The story was always stupid even when they tried to sell it as something better. The characters and plots were always going nowhere. Dante had a major character shift every now and then, and always tried to be cool, instead of … you know, like someone you should care about.

    I also love this quote of you:

    “I really hate people that talk about something they have no freaking idea about.”

    So, Mr. Shitbird, how come you talk down on the new DmC when you never played it? Pathetic, how you can’t see your own ignorance.

    @7: Oh please shut up, Erthazus. We all know the last thing you care about is story. I cared for the story of the first 2 Resident Evil games as much as i cared for the gameplay. How come you always want a game to be just one fucking thing?

    Why can’t the gameplay be good and even tell an interesting story? Something all RE games after Nemesis are missing? They broke their canon with every new entry to the franchise. And people complain about the REBOOT? At least the DmC Reboot will have a story! A proper, well told story. Where i don’t have to be ashamed when i share it with people who are not into animes.

    “If you have problem with Japanese game design, just shut up then.
    Who said that Capcom does not know where to go with Resident Evil? Just because you see the shitty SOCOM studio making RES does not mean that Resident Evil 6 is not in development.”

    WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU EVEN ON ABOUT? Drop those fucking mushrooms, you junkie!

    Where did i say anything about Japan? Capcom clearly doesn’t know where to go with Resident Evil, that’s why RE5 was THAT bad. No Horror, not even survival, just a Third Person Shooter with poor game mechanics.

    I fucking know that RE6 is in development. Unlike you can read AND COMPREHEND.

    “Capcom used two shitty studios to make their franchises that can appeal to younger western audience.”

    *fart* That’s the sound that i always hear when i read your comments. I can’t even imagine you having a voice.

    “Both are bad in everything.”

    Didn’t you just say they were good at Mo Cap? Isn’t that just your stupid, angry-man-child opinion?

    “Both will have shitty score on metacritic and from gamers.”

    You don’t know that.

    Oh dear. Hello Zer0 fancy seeing you here!

    p.s. Capcom did a shitload with RE before its current Identity Crisis. Like making an online version, scrapping 4 different builds of RE4 and dabling in co-op before 5. All of them were met with different fan reaactions but RE4 was how you reboot something correctly.

    “I cared for the story of the first 2 Resident Evil games ”

    LOL. JK. I hope you enjoyed the story in the first game and especially fantastic dialogue.

    “We all know the last thing you care about is story. ”

    “We” Who?

    You? You know shit what i like and what i don’t like. So GTFO really.

    “At least the DmC Reboot will have a story! A proper, well told story.”

    As if i really need to care about the proper story in hack and slash game.
    Well, ok. Let’s just pretend that NT delivered amazing and adult story. So what?

    Everything else that is important for Hack and Slash Game sucks ass and fans of the genre and fans of the series see that in most cases. From crappy gun cooldown that should not be there from the start, to the ok combat system that NT is not trying to show properly in their trailers.

    Also, Devil May Cry had a good anime-pop corn style storyline that people enjoyed. That’s the type of the story people like in DMC.
    3rd game and 4th delivered on that. It was funny, outrageous, stupid at times without childish drama.

    “Where did i say anything about Japan? ”

    you said nothing about Japan, but clearly you don’t like Japanese game design in most cases when it comes to excellent games like Bayonetta and etc.

    “Capcom clearly doesn’t know where to go with Resident Evil, that’s why RE5 was THAT bad. No Horror, not even survival, just a Third Person Shooter with poor game mechanics.”

    Just because it was a bad game does not mean that they don’t know where to go with it. Vision about the game was failed and if you remember RES 5 was about the conclusion of the prime villain. That does not matter if it is shit or not, but they knew what they wanted to do with it, it’s just the execution failed.

    Also, RES 6 is probably in development so saying things like “eww they don’t know what to do with it” is absolutely wrong. If they are developing than CAPCOM absolutely know what to do next with it. Basic logic.
    If you remember, someone from CAPCOM said that they need a lot of years to make a concept for RES 6, so? All these years they had probably a team that figured out what to do with it and in the end we will find out what CAPCOM is cooking with RE.

    “Didn’t you just say they were good at Mo Cap?”

    I didn’t said that. Their mo cap is nothing special, but they always trying to use a lot of their resources just for this.
    NT is not CRYTEK, in terms of technology.

    “You don’t know that.”

    Of course i don’t, but you don’t need to be an expert to expect 9.5 from metacritic and good reactions for both games from gamers.

    Well i think people will need to play the game in order to say if this is a disgrace or a really great game on the series, iam a possitive person that look the half full glass of water, therefore i do have high hopes for this game, like RE4 before it, it was a great game, a great reboot and a great way to take the series to the newest generations, i dont have anything that can make me think otherwise, i mean that this reboot will suck, therefore iam waiting this game with open arms, and i do hope and wish that this game will deliver big time, keep doing a good work NT and capcom.

    @10:

    “You? You know shit what i like and what i don’t like. So GTFO really.”

    You like graphics. We all know that. You don’t like change. We all know that. No matter the developer, the game, you’ll always complain about any change. It’s what you’re known for: Complaining. Mostly about graphics, of course.

    “As if i really need to care about the proper story in hack and slash game.”

    As i said before, you really don’t seem to care for story in videogames if you don’t think any game in any genre can and should have a good story.

    “Everything else that is important for Hack and Slash Game sucks ass and fans of the genre and fans of the series see that in most cases. From crappy gun cooldown that should not be there from the start, to the ok combat system that NT is not trying to show properly in their trailers.”

    There were enough gameplay videos. Did you not see them?

    “Also, Devil May Cry had a good anime-pop corn style storyline that people enjoyed. That’s the type of the story people like in DMC.”

    No, that’s the kind of story they get. If they can get something better, don’t you think they would prefer that? As i said before, if you’d care for story, you’d care for a better story in DMC.

    “3rd game and 4th delivered on that. It was funny, outrageous, stupid at times without childish drama.”

    But it had childish drama, was never really funny and always stupid. What’s your point here? The story of the 4th was also convoluted as shit, without any reason.

    “you said nothing about Japan, but clearly you don’t like Japanese game design in most cases when it comes to excellent games like Bayonetta and etc.”

    I dislike Bayonetta for what it represents: Good gameplay, dumb story, retarded characters and a lot of useless sex-sells bullshit.

    I really like the Shin Megami Tensei Series. Especially Persona 3/4 and Digital Devil Saga. But the Japanese Videogame industry really needs to think outside the box, if they want to stay relevant.

    “Just because it was a bad game does not mean that they don’t know where to go with it. Vision about the game was failed and if you remember RES 5 was about the conclusion of the prime villain.”

    What was Code Veronica about then? He’ll be back eventually. He always comes back. Just another proof that Capcom has no idea where to go with the series. “Let’s bring Wesker back!” “Genius, pass the coke.”

    “That does not matter if it is shit or not, but they knew what they wanted to do with it, it’s just the execution failed.”

    Of course it matters. What are you thinking? They clearly wanted to create an action game, everything, from the directing of the cutscenes to the gameplay elements to the music hints that they wanted to create an action game. Here’s what a Core Resident Evil Game shouldn’t be: An Action Game.

    And you complain about the new DmC not being DMC enough? Are you that much of a hypocrite?

    “Also, RES 6 is probably in development so saying things like “eww they don’t know what to do with it” is absolutely wrong. If they are developing than CAPCOM absolutely know what to do next with it. Basic logic.”

    It’s not probably in development, it IS in development. They confirmed it.

    And just because they are developing it doesn’t mean they know where to go with the game. Remember how many times the re-did RE4? At one point it was Leon Kennedy on Zeppelin fighting mist or something.

    “All these years they had probably a team that figured out what to do with it and in the end we will find out what CAPCOM is cooking with RE.”

    We will find out, that i can agree on.

    “I didn’t said that. Their mo cap is nothing special, but they always trying to use a lot of their resources just for this.
    NT is not CRYTEK, in terms of technology.”

    Never said they were Crytek. What they do with their MoCap is special, unlike most developers they actually use it for more than just fluid cutscenes. MoCap should be about delivering a cinematic experience, most importantly it should be about emotion.

    “Of course i don’t, but you don’t need to be an expert to expect 9.5 from metacritic and good reactions for both games from gamers.”

    Actually, i think you do need to be an expert on that. You’ve been wrong about many things in the past. Might want to let it go for once?

    The new Dmc is aimed at casuals and Pc gamers know just don’t know better (those kids never had any chance to play neither the original nor Bayonetta).

    @youngZero “You like graphics.”

    for games where visuals are important.

    “You don’t like change.”

    I like changes that are not stupid like with DMC. Great example: Tomb Raider 2012

    “As i said before, you really don’t seem to care for story in videogames if you don’t think any game in any genre can and should have a good story.”

    Thats why Metal Gear Solid, Half-Life series are my favourite game series of all time. Right?
    Sorry, but you are wrong again.

    “There were enough gameplay videos. Did you not see them?”

    there are ZERO trailers that show COMBAT and BATTLE system mechanics. Just because Emo Dante dance with his swords and smash everyone does not mean that they showed the gameplay. What they showed you can do by just pressing X, X, X, X on the PS3.

    “No, that’s the kind of story they get. If they can get something better, don’t you think they would prefer that? As i said before, if you’d care for story, you’d care for a better story in DMC.”

    Something better? So far it’s WORSE for most of the folks and if you think that NT DMC has better story it’s only your opinion.
    So far there are bad dialogue and no one knows about the story so far to be honest. Trailers just showed visuals, Dante moves and few stupid dialogue with Ebony and Ivory…

    “I dislike Bayonetta for what it represents: Good gameplay, dumb story, retarded characters and a lot of useless sex-sells bullshit.

    I really like the Shin Megami Tensei Series. Especially Persona 3/4 and Digital Devil Saga. But the Japanese Videogame industry really needs to think outside the box, if they want to stay relevant.”

    Again, you missed the point. Bayonetta story is ENOUGH for that franchise. It’s anime pop corn style of storytelling by Japanese developers. There is a community of gamers that like it. Like Korean Gamers like Korean MMORPG games that is all abut grinding one gem that have a 0.05% drop rate.
    I never saw there “Sex sells bullshit” because Bayonetta is an ugly teacher and i don’t see there so much sex but funny and cliche stuff.

    Japanese Videogame industry does not need to think out of the box because Miyamoto still innovate with a lot of games more than other developers. Kojima does an incredible job too. There is Devils Third that sounds awesome. FFXIII Versus have a potential and a lot of other stuff like Nino no kuni by Miyazaki.
    Not to mention about The Last Guardian.

    Outside of the box you mean more Western shit? Please NO. Western stuff is better for people who know ho to do it right.

    “They clearly wanted to create an action game, everything, from the directing of the cutscenes to the gameplay elements to the music hints that they wanted to create an action game. Here’s what a Core Resident Evil Game shouldn’t be: An Action Game.”

    When there were trailers for RE5 no one knew to be honest that it is just an Action Game. They showed just a gameplay stuff, world and characters.
    Once game was out it was a bad Action Game or Resident Evil 4 copy.
    You never know what is the end of the product untill you will play it.

    With DMC you can clearly see what is not right for most of the fans. There are changes that does not belong to the DMC series from the aesthetics part. Even if it’s the reboot, that’s NOT how you reboot the series. Period.

    Look at the Tomb Raider 2012 for example. Reboot that changes a lot of stuff with the character and the gameplay. People like it. Why? Because it looks awesome and sounds awesome so far.

    So no, changes are good when they are right.

    “Remember how many times the re-did RE4? At one point it was Leon Kennedy on Zeppelin fighting mist or something.”

    Because it’s CAPCOM. They do that with most of their games this generation from RE series to Street Fighter, while main teams cooking something with their franchises.

    “You’ve been wrong about many things in the past.”

    So where i was wrong? Cheap talk won’t work here. Prove or GTFO.
    Let’s see what reactions will be for both games and then we can talk about my failures. M’kay?

    @13, thats why it is not coming to PC. Sarcasm failure. Herp Derp.

    Look up ‘herp derp’. Then look up ‘irony’ and ‘sarcasm’. If

    I will just use my soviet imagination and believe that it is. More so that Capcom usually ports everything to PC anyway. So yes indeed it is coming.

    Erthazus, you’re a moron. Face the facts.
