Marcel,
You shouldnt have any problem in that department as acting should come natural for you.

I use two different softwares for my motion capture.

Let me put together some documentation and I will start the training.

I will leave it up to those interested as to what date would be good to start. Just dont choose today... The date with the most nominations will be it so each person put a date in and we will decide.

I have the softwares... one webcam, one digital camera and one video camera, ie, three cameras. I have dark t-shirts, but they have things write, it will disturb the software? I have black pants but with some lines in another color, it will disturb the software? About the markers, can I pick white paper cut in squares or circles and then glue with tape? I can also paint the markers in another color...

Thank you!

Just a thought but many of us are heading into the Xmas season which will be very busy.

Would deferring the course to January (post hangover) work?

I agree with v3rd3, after December 09 I'll be too busy. If we do it before, for me it's okay. How long would be the learning curve? If you think it's too big we can do it calmly in january.

I would also would like to wait until january. I have much work to do before the school semester ends before Christmas.

The middle of january would suit me. The spring semester has started and everything has settled.
