That book is incredible. Focuses on marker set-ups for a passive optical system, so you're getting info on the most widely used type of system. What you aren't getting is a detailed description of the softwares/techniques you'll need to process the mocap data and retarget it onto a character. For that, you'll need to dig around a bit.

These links might help:






Check the MotionBuilder forum and look how XSI and Maya are implementing their new mocap/animation toolsets. The SoftImage Wiki has some good articles, as well.

Try this book, too:
