Beautiful Noise (1968)

Beautiful Noise/The Dynne (1968)


First face motion capture (digital puppet) , first singing  CGI character



1) Beautiful Noise - character here is much more advanced than in previous film made by "Animac" (The Stick Man), it consisting of more complex oscillations, and a sine/cosine mouth that opens and closes in sync to the vocalist track. This was generated by Animac, and some of the motion was from the mechanical harness, recorded on  16mm film.

2) The Dynne - This little guy is the next in the progression, incorporating harness-controlled arms, legs, head, with animated eyes and a lip-circuit mouth in sync with the audio track.

3) First videogame with synchronized voice was Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers (1993).
