Motion capture and facial capture are two extremely useful techhologies currently impacting 3D animation.

Like rotoscoping, they're also easily misused by people who don't have a good visual sense about animation.

Good use of a time-saving technology. I would love to see a longer version of this! Thanks for the link, Mike!
