Tennis World Tour – Motion Capture For Animations
Sydney, 17th January, 2018. Bigben and Breakpoint are taking you behind the scenes of the motion capture which lets the developers of Tennis World Tour offer realistic gameplay.
Animation, the central element of a tennis game
To make the movements and ball exchanges fluid and faithful to real tennis, Breakpoint has called on several professional tennis players in order to record their movements. To have the best possible references, the motion capture was performed on a real tennis court and not in a studio, giving players the freedom to hit the ball and move around without constraint.

In addition to the French player Lucas Pouille, seen in the video, the Australia Open is the moment to reveal other names that have just been added to the already announced list of players:
- Stan Wawrinka, who won in 2014 and who distinguished himself by reaching the semi-finals in 2017
- The Australian player Thanasi Kokkinakis who, along with his compatriot Nick Kyrgios who is also in the game, we would like to wish them good luck for their home tournament.
