What is Motion Capture 

Motion capture, often known as mo-cap or mocap, is the process of digitally capturing humans in motion. It is employed in robotics, ergonomics, sports, entertainment, and medical applications. It refers to the process of filming actor movements for animations or visual effects in video games and film. Avatar is a well-known illustration of a film that extensively uses motion capture technology. It is also referred to as performance capture when it involves the entire body, face, and fingers or when it captures subtle reactions.
