Cantonese Opera Movement Capture System for 3D Modelling and Preservation

In 2015-18, the project team successfully carried out a pilot project to develop the 3D Computerised Kinetic Chain Assessment and Learning System (‘Kinect System’ hereafter), which also marks the first research and development deliverable of RCTCO. Although the Kinetic System could successfully testify the possibility of movement capture for the assessment and transmission in Cantonese Opera, the tracking mechanism is not accurate enough to capture the authentic movement for the purpose of cultural heritage preservation. This proposed project aims to develop a professional motion tracking system for Cantonese Opera movements, which captures a set of movement of a sang (生) maestro. The system will make use of optical motion capture suit to comprehensively track and capture the maestro’s movement that could be regenerated and replayed by a 3D model in the virtual environment. Apart from the purposes of appreciation and preservation, collected data is an important resource for further development of a professional 3D assessment and learning system in the next stage that will achieve the ultimate goal for the Transmission of Cantonese Opera. This project is a prerequisite of the next stage in which a new software will be developed.
