Moments in time of Building a Motion Capture System

Over the past few days I have been assembling a 12 camera Optitrack Flex 13 Motion Capture System in the Schools new Green Screen Room. The first set of images below are a photography journey of this process of the first day working on this. The consisted of setting up the workstation, mounting the cameras, wiring them up and positioning them with respect to the capture volume. Have written more about the process at the following blog.

All the above images were form this past Thursdays work on the Motion Capture System, given that all the cameras were positioned all that was remaining was to calibrate the system and tidy up the cables, which I spent a good deal of this past morning and afternoon doing, as per the following images.

13 Videos of Riverside East Illuminated at Night

A recent post a few days ago was a collection of photographs featuring the roof of the Riverside East building at the Garthdee Campus of Robert Gordon University. This series of videos was recorded at the same time the photographs were taken and show the ever changing lighting that is directed towards the ceiling of Riverside East. The first of these videos is a timelapse showing the exterior as seen from the library tower.

Riverside East at Night 28th October 2013

Following on from my previous post (26th July 2013) which featured the completed Riverside East building during the day, this set of photographs were taken late in the evening on the 28th October. The timing seemed appropriate as it was the first day of classes after the clocks went back an hour. Hence the winter months are well on the way as the nights get longer. The following are just a few other posts charting the development of the Riverside East Building at the Garthdee Campus of Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.
