Motion Follow Capture Program #67? Just how many motion follow capture programs does one man need? Is he making a new program every time he wants to record something in the house? That might make sense, but I wonder what else he's recorded down in that basement.

Anyway, Grace's line in the last panel is kinda odd. It almost sounds like she has some self image problems.

Maybe he's had a lot of revisions and it's actually version 67? :)

Must be an impressive program though, considering it also recorded Tedd's inner dialog.

Maybe its variant #67?
Motion following is hard, you have to identify what it is you have to follow, and then try to keep it all in frame well. The latter bit even humans can struggle with.
So it would be totally realistic to have lots of "profiles" for the software, to make it behave in different ways for different things that need recording, and different orders of priority.

Chronos: My, Grace is naive. She also seems to have some self-esteem issues regarding her body...

Reusing images? Must be a lot easier on the computer. Back when I was drawing entirely on paper, if I wanted to re-use an image, I had to trace it - and since I didn't have a "tracing table" or whatever they use(d), I had to hold the picture up against a window to get the picture to show through enough to trace it.
