Natural Walk. Clip 1

Yvonne Fontijne started the development of a motion library in collaboration
with Motek Motion Technology. The library was created to enable access and
use of all possible human motions, registered in 3D.

The animation ‘Natural Walk’ was created using the first movements captured
for this library. Each part of the animation is based on the specific motion
of one of the body parts (for example knees or arms).
While continuously walking at the same speed the various positions of
the feet, knees, hips, chest, shoulders, elbows, hands and head were
registered. By blending such sequences together every combination
can be obtained.

Duration of full animation: 1 hour, 30 seconds for each motion.
