This project is designed to figure out and catalog how to use and apply the Motion Capture equipment at WPI so that any student group is able to use it in their own projects with a minimum of difficulty. We have set up a knowledge database, in the form of a wiki, and have added our resources and products to the IMGD repository, but they are ultimately community-driven and will grow along with the growing interest in motion capture technology. Through independent research and experimentation, we have developed a series of techniques for capturing motion, cleaning the data that comes from it, and applying it to make an animation, with extensive use of Autodesk MotionBuilder.
