Motion Capture technology was actively used in Life is Strange.
The motion capture for Life is Strange was realized by a French company called Mocaplab. The whole process took only four days, equivalent of a feature film shoot.
The motion capture was used to help in animating the two main characters Maxine Caulfield and Chloe Price, and a few others like Nathan Prescott or Warren Graham.
Max's motion capture actress was Serena de Mouroux while the actress playing Chloe was Gabrielle Hersh.
