Watch the Resistance 3 Motion Capture Documentary

James Stevenson's Avatar Posted by Community Lead, Insomniac Games

Hey everyone! During our Comic-Con Resistance 3 panel, we discussed our motion-capture techniques and how they helped us build the game’s story. We showed an in-progress behind-the-scenes video that chronicled our mocap process in Resistance 3, and how we have continued to evolve that process from the work we did on Resistance 2. That video is now complete, and we’re excited to share with you how we really brought the cinematics and characters of Resistance 3 to life. Give it a watch below.

We hope you enjoyed that behind-the-scenes look! As always, we’d love to hear from you, so send us a reply on Twitter or on our Facebook wall or join the conversation at MyResistance.net. If you have questions about the on-going beta and updates to it, please be sure to check out our recent post here.

If you have questions, I’ll try to answer them below.

How is the tech different from the hand held feel you guys used in Resistance 2. Is it used in R3 as well or this something new?

    It’s definitely used as well, but this time we captured more of the performance (audio, face) on stage at the same time.

    No plans to at this point, but you never know. It’d be a gigantic download

Sony is wise for having this studio in it’s fold, as R3 certainly seems to be carving a place for its self in the somewhat stagnant FPS genre. By stagnant, I mean out of all the types of games being made, the FPS seems to be the type least likely to innovate. I appreciate the studios effort in the story aspect of the game as well as their multiplayer approach. I feel giving the actors the ability to feed off each other improves story immersion a ton.

Please Sony can you ADVERTISE this game!!! I am tired of seeing some great PS3 exclusives to sell “not so good”.

piefromhell said:

August 10th, 11:11 am

this is some fun stuff to watch wish youd show more videos on the making of videos there always a great thing to watch

mastorofpuppetz said:

@18, I love Ps3, but Sony is abysmal at marketing its exclusives. Most gamers outside hardcore Ps3 gamers never heard of resistance, or many of the Ps3 great exclusives. This is due to lackluster marketing from Sony.

Why do you think Xbox exclusives like Gears sell 5-6 million, when games as good or better like resistance, Uncharted sell less despite huge critical acclaim?

Sony has by far the best lineup, unfortunately most don;t know about it due to sony’s hands off approach to marketing.

Resistance 3 is looking like the best one yet and prob will be the best shooter exclusive of 2011, but it will get lost in the gears/COD hype, sad.

I was on vaccation, how can i get into the R3 beta now?

zabelzerolp said:

August 10th, 11:26 am

Thanks.. I always like it when I get to see the behind the Scenes on my favorite video games. R3 is AWESOME!!!
One more question Where can I get me a R3 T-shirt like Peter Cornforth (5:13). I want one of those shirts.

Airwalkinman17 said:

August 10th, 12:23 pm

Can’t wait!!!
like someone else said only 4 more weeks :D
have this bad boy paid and ready to go. I’ve been eagerly anticipating playing the beta just to get a piece of the action and to give some feedback on my favorite fps franchise. Hope to have matchmaking up soon! Good luck.

I can’t wait! I’m glad to see some postivie comments on a post about Resistance for once. I’ve played RFOM and R2 to death, and it’s dissapointing to see all the flak R3 is getting from the purists. Keep up the good work IG I can’t wait to play this when it comes out :).

pickupdoctor said:

August 10th, 1:31 pm

When does the OPEN BETA come out for PS+ SUBs?

fauzman said:

August 10th, 3:06 pm

This game looks really awesome and im preordering it. The demo at E3 was a disappointment being pretty average compared to all the other great games, but since then all the releases and info on the game has me really excited. Hope Insomniac make a killing with this game.

This game gonna be amazing.

Heisem said:

August 10th, 4:38 pm

wait…where is the chimera motion capture..are you telling me those things aren’t real?

javi2hotty said:

August 10th, 5:10 pm

How did you get the movement and AI reactions in the game to be soo realistic?

namynos said:

August 10th, 6:43 pm

“I’m tired of watching my son die” ? Is it just me or does something sound wrong with that sentence. How many times can her son die for her to be tired of it? I must be missing something. lol

k9guerrero said:

August 10th, 7:37 pm

Hopefully we can more of this on the Resistance 3 blu-ray disc (mo-cap). Its very interesting.

k9guerrero said:

August 10th, 7:38 pm

More videos of motion capture i mean. ^^^

clovis2012 said:

August 10th, 8:06 pm

So where do I get one of those Resistance 3 T-shirts? ;-)

cosmis_chaos said:

August 10th, 10:14 pm

@ namynos. It obviously means that she probably has had and lost children before. She could have had more then one child with this guy and they were killed or had children before the Chimera invaded and they got killed.

loadstone007 said:

August 11th, 4:55 am

You should have warned – SPOILER alert!

namynos said:

August 11th, 3:41 pm

Hi, I’m not trying to nitpick but if you were correct shouldn’t she of said something like “Im tired of watching my children die” or even Son’s? I’t be nice if james Stevenson or anyone at Insomniac would answer this. I’m just curious thats all. I will definitely be keeping an eye open for that part of the game when i get it . LOL


August 12th, 5:50 am

I want that orange Resitance 3 t-shirt. Where do I get one?

anthony19672 said:
