MOSCOW, RUSSIA, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 -- iPi Soft, developers of the advanced markerless motion capture software iPi Motion Capture will again be sponsoring Machinima Expo, the six-year-old virtual event that takes place on November 17 from 10am to 4pm PST on the event website via their Ustream channel. They will also embed pre-recorded programming and film premieres into their main website and on the Expo Facebook site and Twitter channel. 

The Machinima Expo is an annual festival that celebrates the art of machinima, a form of 3D animation using a real time game engine. Although machinima grew out of the game community, several software companies like Moviestorm, Reallusion and Linden Labs Second Life have created real-time engines that are specifically designed to create machinima content.
iPi Soft is an official sponsor of the event and will offer one iPi Motion Capture Standard license to the Grand Jury prize winner of the Machinima Expo Film Competition. 

“This is our second time being part of this important event celebrating creativity and we continue to be amazed at the brilliant ways machinima filmmakers are incorporating motion capture into their art,” Michael Nikonov, iPi Soft’s Founder and Chief Technology Architect says. “Motion capture is such an expressive medium for machinima filmmakers and our goal remains to provide content creators with the ultimate solution for creating believable 3D character motion conveniently and affordably without the need of a studio space, special lighting or background.”

Machinima Expo is co-produced by Ricky Grove, who has been at the forefront of the machinima community as a voice actor and sound designer for over 10 years. He’s also a contributing editor for the respected renderosity.com website and recently called iPi Motion Capture 2.0 “an excellent application that will continue to get better.” 

"iPi Soft's motion capture software is changing the way that machinima directors animate their films,” Grove says. “Forget the clunky, robotic character animation that you see in many machinima films. iPi Soft lets you to quickly animate characters realistically right in your living room. We’re proud to partner again with iPi Soft to present this cost-effective and simple method of ‘motion-capture for the masses.’"
