Computer Animation - Project 3
Koosbane Karaoke was an exciting project for us. This is an attempt to make a group of lamps dance to a "Hin-glish" song.
This is a one-and-a-half minute clip of the sound track "Where's the Party Tonight" from an Indian Hindi movie "Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna". Here is the ogg-vorbis version of the song that we created.
Modeling Tool: Anim8or
Programming Language: Lua

How we did it
We used three sensors to represent the three points on the lamp:
Lamp Base: Held fixed in the left hand and moved minimally
Lamp Shoulder: Sensor tied to the right elbow of the actor
Lamp Head: Sensor held in actor's right hand
We captured about 30 minutes of data and cut the data to fit the 1.5 minute song.
