Ted on the Oscars

While watching the Oscars last weekend, viewers had the chance to see Mark Wahlberg and Ted interact on stage. At first I thought it was just a cool illusion like Tupac during Coachella. I researched the subject and  found the animation during the show was pre taped. This sparked my curiosity of how Ted was actually created. The basic animation is based off of Seth MacFarlane's performance on set. Seth wore a suit with motion tracking points off camera. While the actors perfumed he would say and act he lines of Ted. The graphics we later sent to Tippet studio for finer animation and texturing. 

There is a cool video of Seth using the suit found here:
