7.347 Fueling Sustainability: Engineering Microbial Systems for Biofuel Production (MIT) 7.347 Fueling Sustainability: Engineering Microbial Systems for Biofuel Production (MIT)

Description

The need to identify sustainable forms of energy as an alternative to our dependence on depleting worldwide oil reserves is one of the grand challenges of our time. The energy from the sun converted into plant biomass is the most promising renewable resource available to humanity. This seminar will examine each of the critical steps along the pathway towards the conversion of plant biomass into ethanol. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. Many instructors of the Advanced Undergraduate Seminars are postdoctoral scientists with a strong interest in The need to identify sustainable forms of energy as an alternative to our dependence on depleting worldwide oil reserves is one of the grand challenges of our time.

Juan Nader - CREATING A MOTION CAPTURE DATABASE FOR HUMAN-LIKE COMPUTER ANIMATED CHARACTERS

Description

Achieving a realistic movement is one of the significant tasks of animators when working with computer generated characters. This dissertation shows the process to develop a motion capture database, its importance to the animators community, its multiple possible uses, a research on current web sites that provide data to animators and the creation of the Oxford Brookes University Motion Capture Database. It digs into topics like interface and interactivity, the importance of being an educational database, the benefits of providing free motion capture data and also, it documents the whole process of the first motion captures uploaded to the database.

Development of Interactive Exhibition Stands for the Ashmolean Museum

Description

MSc dissertation The purpose of this dissertation is twofold: it describes the workflow of the production of the software for interactive stands to be placed in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and explains the process of creating 3D models from pictures with image-based techniques. The dissertation will cover the entire workflow from the acquisition of photographs to create the 3D models and their elaboration, to the creation of the interface and the software to be run on the mobile device for the Museum stand. A critical evaluation will follow, together with suggestions for further research and analysis on the subject of image-based 3D modelling and interactive applications for cultural heritage.

Efi Anastasiou - A Study of Production Methods in Matchmoving

Description

MSC Digital Media Production dissertation This dissertation project is based on a study of production methods in matchmoving. The purpose of this study was to explore character matchmoving and compare a commercial matchmoving software package to a non-commercial/ open source. This dissertation met these twin research aims through an extensive study of relevant literature and the implementation of practical study by producing a video sequence using different camera movements and light conditions in exterior and interior shots. In the following chapters I present a background research and theory of matchmoving software packages and the parameters to be considered in matchmoving process. Also, I illustrate a brief history of matchmoving in filmmaking and I present some other visual effects te

Leonidas Koukouflis - Designing and Developing a Student Web Portal Using a Content Management System

Description

MSc dissertation on web design The aim of this dissertation is the design and development of a modern web portal motivated by the desire to allow digital media production students to share and comment upon streaming video relevant to their studies. This portal was decided to be implemented mostly via free/open source software applications and specifically using the Joomla content management system, built upon the Apache / MySQL / PHP stack. It supports the streaming of preencoded video such as Brookes TV episodes, as well as live video such as live lecture streaming, through the use of Joomla extensions and Adobe media applications. Additional features such as a discussion forum, latest technology news, dynamic background and user registration are added to the portal as an indication of th

An Msc Dissertation on motion capture Reading and reviewing the literature, especially the most recent studies and research, we understood the different aspects pertaining to facial motion capture, and how the final facial animation could benefit from a facial motion capture data, held in a library. Within the reading and review phase, we found out that many of the traditional methods had not delivered the required efficiencies for facial, generating multiple opportunities for manufacturers, from different angles, consumer, media, film industry, to come up with their own methods, delivering effective performances for their specific requirements. This research implemented the entire end-to-end pipeline, to generate facial motion capture data, with the final intent to perform facial animatio

Lucas Niejadlik-Methods of resizing MoCap skeletons in aid of solving motion

Description

Abstract Motion Capture is one of most popular methods of animation in CGI nowadays. Being subject to constant development there is a need for customisation of existing tools. Production pipelines used by Audiomotion Studios are a prime example of such development, however the full functionality has not been implemented yet. In order to improve processes of the company, a method of resizing virtual skeletons based on surface marker data needs to be introduced. A research of algebra and geometry is conducted in order to establish suitability of mathematical methods for finding centres of joints, thus allowing sizing of bones of virtual skeleton used in Motion Capture. Two 2D methods of finding centres of rotation (joints) are introduced: first one based on properties of a circle, and the se

Ingrid Maria Josepha Fleuren-Motion Capture for Recording Multiple Subjects Simultaneously

Description

Abstract The purpose of this dissertation was to find out if it was possible to conduct motion capture of two subjects simultaneously in the given time. There is little information available on motion capture, and virtually none available on the subject of multiple-person motion capture. The hardware and software used was the Vicon IQ system, Motion Builder, Maya, After Effects, Premiere Pro and Camtasia. This dissertation will cover the entire workflow from setting up a motion capture studio to exporting the final animation; every step is detailed. All the issues in completing the dissertation are covered, followed by a critical evaluation of the final product. In conclusion, this project has shown that you can make a proper video capture of two people simultaneously through motion captur

Josselin Cornou-An evaluation of matchmoving techniques through the media production workflow

Description

Abstract The creation of the special effects always takes an important place in the video production process. Nowadays, in order to recreate and facilitate scenes, the special effect appears as one of the mandatory tool in every video production process. By experiencing and analysing different VFX techniques, the main aim of this paper is to evaluate the matchmoving techniques through the animation workflow by producing a 12 minutes short film. In a way to recreate 3D environment based on footage information (2D plane), the matchmoving techniques appears to be the main technique used in media production workflow. Having a better understanding on the theory, the uses and the guidelines appears as interesting as it may involves a lot of connections though the different pipelines. Based on a

Michael Weston - Amarubaurrata:Technology and Talent

Description

Abstract This Final Report presents the finding of a build project that sought to create and promote a virtual band using animation technology. The projects objective was to overturn a commercially led trend in the music industry to create virtual bands as a means of eliminating the need for creative talent. This report explains how this objective has been achieved and reflects upon the problems and solutions that have been encountered during the production process. The report concludes that while technology can help facilitate the creative process, it cannot overcome all of the problems faced by an independent musician in commercial realities of the music industry.
