I came across this site the other day looking for one thing or another.

http://www.orthoteers.co.uk/Nrujp~ij33lm/Orthgait.htm#COMPONENTS

Check out the link labeled as (see Walking Cycle Picture (http://www.orthoteers.co.uk/Nrujp~ij33lm/Images7/gait4.jpg))

I think this may be a valuable resource for thoes trying to figure out the scientific mechanics of the walk cycle.

For a detailed account of the walk cycles of animals, see "lifes other secret" by Ian Stewart which explains the maths of different gaits of animals.

The Muybridge books are pretty cool. I have the human and animala ones. I remember back in college, they had a set of books way thicker than the ones available now. I think they may have actually been the original books. Anyway, somewhere there's way more pictures than we have available to us now.

I think you can get the complete books still. They come in a three volume series (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/048623794X/103-8055207-4941418?v=glance).
