Why I think this new AI motion-capture app has been worth the wait

After 12 weeks in beta since teasing us with the ability to create realistic mocap using just an iPhone, Move One from Move AI is now available to all. The AI app enables animators and creatives to capture human movement anywhere and turn it into project-ready animation, and I'm impressed.

AI within the creative industry gets a pretty bad rap, and often rightfully so, as our interview with Kelly McKernan revealed, but there are AI apps being developed that can help and not remove jobs (and don't prey on artists' copyrights). This is why Move One has caught my eye. This AI motion-capture app can create 3D animation with a single camera, and as someone who works in CG, it's not setting the same alarm bells as some AI apps.
