Performance capture technology or motion capture is the recording actions of human actors, and using that film and data to animate them in 2D or 3D computer animation. You have seen such work in Avatar, Polar Express and the recently released The Adventures of Tin Tin. It is the first time this type of filming and process will be used in an Indian film.
