Any one have a BVH file importer that they would love to give me because it would make them all feel warm and fuzzy inside? I don't look forward to having to write one for this one instance that a client needs it. I don't want to have to go through biped. Or does any one know of a free one out there any where?

Best I could find, but then again you probably checked that already...:shrug:

Download PuppetShop, and use the BVH importing under the File->Advanced rollout (not the Human one, which will only import based on a certain naming scheme). It'll create a nice visualization of the BVH you can then do with as you'd like.

Thanks guys, both good suggestions but neither work work the way that I need. I'm either writing it or getting them to convert everything to FBX.

You may be able to use the Puppetshop version without a puppet at all solely via scripting (I know you can do it solely via scripting with a puppet, haven't tried without a puppet).

Does anyone have info on how to parse the bvh heirachy correctly? Its doing my head in trying to understand the recurcive brackets:

(
(
(
)
)
)

etc, etc.. The way i was doing it was to basically count up and down based on the { and } brackets but its causing my lots of grief :(

I looked at it and then decided the client could go this FBX instead. Yes it looks like a real pain.

pulling my hair out over trying to parse the hierachy! I love TRC data or data based on pure vectors - being tied into a strict hierarchy and angles is so hard to deal with.
