Motion Capture Formats

Recommended Posts

Hi all Just a quick post to see if anyone could help me with a query I have about current motion capture file formats and which is the best to use. I''ve been trying to code a loader/saver for .BVH (Biovision) and .AMC (Acclaim) files, but am finding recursion (arrrggghh!!) a bit of a sod!! Just wanted to know if all, or at least most, of the current 3d packages (Max, Maya, XSI, LW, Cinema4D, etc) support either of these formats, AND if anyone knows of any source code for loading .BVH files then that would be cooool!! Cheers ... Dan

Well, I know that Cinema4d can import BVH files, not sure about AMC. You have to attach the bones to the animated figure, I couldn''t get mine to work when I tried it but that was probably due to not having enough bones in my model, I could get it moving, just not the right way. Sorry I couldn''t help any more.
