Zumba Fitness World Party Video Game


Zumba Fitness World Party

Zumba Fitness World Party has just been released for the Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, and Nintendo Wii. The Graphlite motion control crane was used to capture the movement of all of the dancers and to film intros to each level. Pacific Motion Control worked closely with Ron Fischer and the crew at Universal’s UVS1 to provide real-time compositing and accurate move data for post production. Move data was streamed in real-time to Ron and his Lightcraft Previzion system, and live composites of the dancers on CGI backgrounds were able to be viewed by the production crew. This move data was then used in post production to seamlessly integrate the moving shots of live dancers into the digitally created world of the game. The footage was shot on an Arri Alexa.

The Graphlite motion control crane was used to shoot the stair shots from 0:32 to 0:42. This shot was extensively pre-vised in Maya, using our Graphlite Maya Model and the move was imported into our Kuper motion control software. The shot mixed live-action, CG elements and intricate set design to extend the circular staircase.
