The mo-cap animations in tribes1 and 2 were pretty impressive and I wouldn't call them a waste of time.
I remember reading a long time ago, before Jedi Knight was published that Jedi Knight animations would also use motion capture. I don't know whether that actually happened or not. Anyone got any info on this?
Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
Winston Churchill, 1941.
