Creating First Person Movement for Mirror’s Edge

DICE have given a GDC presentation on the creation of their first-person animations which, with the camera, combine to give perhaps the most immersive first-person experience in games so far. I loved Mirror’s Edge when it came out last year and immediately started replaying on completion as well as picking up the DLC and downloading the soundtrack and the recent iPhone game. It’s interesting to see someone else thought of attaching a camera to a mocapped head, though it didn’t work out and good old animator talent was the solution.
