Erin Truesdell, PPJ Winter Week 7

It’s Mocap O’Clock

  • Mocap Cleaning: 4h
  • Playtest Setup/Takedown: 2h

Total Hours: 6h

Alright! Lots of progress made on the mocap and playtesting front this week as our team enters The Week With Half A Team.

Positives: I was one of the team members assigned to clean mocap data this week. The team that actually did the mocap shoot did such a wonderful job producing good, clean, data, that I was able to clean my portion of the animations in one night. Huzzah for good work. Our playtest went off smoothly and we were able to put together a scene in no time to get people in there testing.

Negatives: I do not exist right now. I’m actually writing this PPJ from a hotel room in Atlanta, and was suuuuper swamped this week trying to wrap up a bunch of things before I peaced out for nearly all of Week 7 (yay grad school visits!) Also, our playtesters found a bunch of bugs/other things that need cleaning, so that has to happen. That said, despite the upcoming terror of literally half of our team being AWOL with papers, competitions, and me being Schrodinger’s Grad Student, we are in a position where our planning has made it almost a non-issue. Yay for Gantt charts!

Next week I’m on to…visitng grad schools, mostly. That Ph.D. program ain’t gonna pick itself. Also, probably bugfixing and puzzle updates.

Looking Ahead:

  • Bugfixing and puzzle updates
  • Meet with potential Ph.D. advisors
  • Return to Philadelphia
