Besides being able to track nuanced actor performances with convincing realism, Luma required a mocap platform that could be easily incorporated into their existing ecosystem. “It had to be a system that was simple to set-up and pipe into MotionBuilder and Maya,” added Swanson. “OptiTrack fulfilled this need and gave us a quality of output that would keep pace with the most demanding of film projects.”

Underworld: Awakening is the fourth film in the popular vampire-werewolf saga. The films depict an on-going war between vampires and Lycans, usually through the character of Selene (Kate Beckinsale). It was the first film of the series to be presented in 3D and was released on January 20, 2012.
