This project has not been successfully funded. Sorry!

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

I am Nawres Arif  academically I am a pharmacist, but I am a designer from birth: drawing, sculpture, mechanics & making things from early childhood till I met the digital 3D arts.

The adventure of science-art mix Began.
3D animation mentoring and 3D works became my profession and my passion.
And today I am trying to push the 3D animation industry forward through this project and I want to share that moment with you. The moment to make young 3D artists and small companies able to reach their dreams in easy , fast and lower cost 3D character animations films.


WHAT IS "i-mimic" ?
i-mimic is a 3D Motion Capture suit, which is a wearable device that captures human performer motion & position to control the animation of virtual 3D character to make animated film or video game.  It is in the shape of EXOSKELETON (wearable suit with solid parts measuring joints angles)
SO... the use of i-mimic 3D Motion Capture suit makes the process of animating 3D characters EASY & FAST . 


WHATS NEW IN MY PROJECT (i-mimic) ?
The traditional MOCAP suits works by recording the human animation with a special software that comes with the suit and need to learn this new software or add a "suit operator" to the team after recording session these software (came with suits) produces MOCAP files that can be imported in the 3D animation software to be loaded to the 3D character to animate in different time of motion recording session


the NEW FEATURES in my project :
1-i-mimic works DIRECTLY with 3D software (3Ds MAX , Maya , ...) without plugins or intermediary software (NO need to learn new software )
2-i-mimic works in REAL-TIME (not post production) i.e the 3D designer can see his virtual 3D creature motions in his 3D software at the same time the 3D MOCAP performer moves... i.e the virtual 3D character will (mimic) the MOCAP suit motion instantly
3-Easy to operate . any 3D designer can operate the "i-mimic" 3D MOCAP suit and no need to add specialist operator to the production team
4-SIMPLE & SHORT workflow
all that because I designed the Suit depending on already present capturing features in 3D software and from the view of 3D designer

THE BIG STEP ...
This project will make any young 3D animation artist to intrude the 3D animation industry confidently in professional level
imagine that any young 3D artist can make his own "one man show" 3D animated film without needing help of big professional studios or big budget equipment or  professional team with high salary...
that is the difference I want to make...

 HOW IT IS HAPPENED ! ?
As a I am a 3D designer and the  3D  character animation represent a big challenge to any 3D animator or small companies... because of the complexity of human motion simulation...  
but the big studios and film production companies use expensive MOCAP suits... as a mythical solution...   
but...
I am not just dream to get one... I decided to go farther...
I will make my own MOCAP suit ! and with revolutionary new features... and available for wide segment of low budget customers of young 3D artist and small companies

HOW THE FUNDING WILL HELP?
your contribution will help the i-mimic VER.1 to Emerge...
the fund will be used to purchase the raw materials and  machines (professional 3D printer) to produce the full body joints VER.1 i-mimic 3D MOCAP suit ...
the i-mimic 3D MOCAP suit consist of specially designed electromechanical joints need to be designed in 3D printing technology to fit organic nature of human body ...
so I need to purchase a professional level 3D printer device
