Stefan Rueger of KMi presented recent work on markerless motion capture at a landmark Conference for Visual Media Production that was held at BFI Southbank. The significance of this joint work with Frederic Fol Leymarie, Prashant Aparajeya and Vesna Petresin of Goldsmiths is that it will allow a practical way of capturing the motion of articulated moving bodies from a standard single-camera video feed without depth information and without placing markers on the subjects. Potential applications might see dancing performances using computer-aided lighting and projections based on the motion analysis or real-time avatars in video games copying the players' motions or reacting to them.

The Conference for Visual Media Production is a longstanding event where specialists from the worlds of film, broadcast and games meet with imaging and graphics researchers. The packed auditorium in BFI's blue cinema saw industrial keynotes from NVIDIA, Google, Double Negative and Industrial Light and Magic
