The CHOPS Flash Video ArchivesWelcome to our archive of streaming video clips - produced in previous years as examples of our live
animation technology using the original Digital Puppeteer system with motion capture, prior to 2006.
Click on the pictures below to start playing the Flash Videos. If you are connected to the Web by dial-up, you may need to wait until the movie streams in completely, and then click on the picture below, a second time, to play it non-stop. DSL and broadband surfers should see the gray-striped player immediately.
If you click and don’t see anything in the window that opens up (after a few seconds), you need to install the latest Flash player. The Flash Player for your system can be obtained via the link at the bottom of this page. These clips are made for average quality, in order to load faster.
To the right, you can see Gary at the controls of the second version of the Digital Puppeteer, which used a Motion Analysis Face Tracker for lip sync and facial expressions.
