Cubic Motion Receives £100K Grant for R&D

Cubic Motion Ltd., a Daresbury Science & Innovation Campus (UK)-based company which specialises in providing animation services to the video game, TV and film markets by converting data streams, such as video footage, into 3D facial animation, has received a £100,000 Grant for Research and Development from the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA).
The award will be used to research a new technology approach, which will potentially allow real-time transfer of extremely detailed facial movements from video to 3D characters at production levels of quality. This solution would dramatically improve the workflow and efficiency of facial animation, making new products possible and significantly contributing to the supply chain for graphics techniques in the region.

Grant for Research and Development, which is part of Solutions for Business, the Government’s package of publicly funded business support designed to help entrepreneurs and business owners introduce innovative products and processes, including research trials and product testing, is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA).
