Compress and Denoise MoCap with Autoencoders

In this article, you’ll learn how to train an autoencoding Neural Network to compress and denoise motion capture data and display it inside Maya Autoencoders are at the heart of some raytracer denoising and image upscaling (aka. super-resolution) technologies. Despite the pompous name, an autoencoder is just a Neural Network …

What in the world is a Neural Network? And what can it do for me?

In short Neural Networks can learn patterns from data. That lets you program tasks that are easy for a person/expert to do but are hard for such people to explain how they’ve done it. Like, face recognition, for example. What good are they for 3D animation?
