Originally I was collaborating with Keali, but as we worked on separate parts of out projects, our paths diverged. I started off by messing around with the three-dimensional representation of motion capture. I started by using PeasyCam to make the camera view changeable by use of the mouse. Then I experimented with what it would look like to show all the frames of the motion capture by not only drawing the current frame- this was inspired by Etienne-Jules Marey. The result of this was interesting at first, but it became incomprehensible overtime because everything ended up the same color.

Then I decided to cycle the color of the motion capture through all the different shades of gray, and to add opacity. Then I recorded a motion capture (thanks Kander) of someone moving very slowly so that the motion could be better shown as the lines would be closer together. The video and gif are on a smaller screen resolution, but my screenshots below are done on a 3840 x 2160 pixel screen. I also made it so that you can reset the program by pressing ‘x’ – this will redraw the background to whatever the current line color is
