Rockstar considering using Motionscan for next GTA title
Team Bondi co-founder Brendan McNamara has revealed that Rockstar may be looking at using Motionscan animation tech in the next GTA game.
Despite the rumours surrounding the damaged relationship between Rockstar and Team Bondi over the development LA Noire it seems that Motionscan may be a good fit for GTA V.
McNamara said: "Yeah, I think they're looking at it for every game. As much as LA Noire is a huge game, Grand Theft Auto is incredibly huge, so you've got all the problems of how big the cast would be and how many lines would you have to record and all that kind of stuff. Obviously we'd like them to, and they're more than welcome to use MotionScan, but if they decide it's not right for that and want to use it for another game, then that's fine too."
He argued: "I think it brings a level of humanity to the experience that means people will - in the first few minutes - start relating to the characters on screen. They don't have to make that decision about 'whether I like this guy' or 'do I actually believe them? - but they can make all the like or dislike decisions based on the actor's performance. Rockstar will make those decisions. They generally make the right decisions in terms of what they do for their games."
