Virtual Director is a "through the lens" directing tool that allows directors to interact with virtual environments just like in a live studio setting. Using motion capture technology, the camera is tracked along with the performers to provide a live stream of animation viewed from the position of the camera. The director can rehearse, do set decoration and scene blocking from the point of view of the camera. When recording motion, the director can capture many separate camera moves over the same previously recorded performance.
