SAN DIEGO, CA -- Motion picture effects studios Mova and Gentle Giant unveiled what they state is the first 3-D Zoetrope.

The system operates by reading a specially painted actor's facial movements, digitizing the information and then transferring it in near real time to another 3-D physical sculpture, which moves in concert with the actor's movements.

The companies claim that the technology "ties together the traditional world of cinematography with digital computer animation, expanding the possibilities for both motion picture and video game makers."
