Thanks if you can help!
Edit: Actually, I found a good tutorial on setting up a scene here
I still wouldn't mind one on cleaning up the data though
So...It is a little too extensive to actually go into. However, depending on what version of motionbuilder you are using, (hopefully 7 or above) they really did a good job at making the help files more user friendly. Open up the help files and search for "optical data" anything that comes up with a 123 in green is a tutorial. I suggest that you read all of the documentation though. This should point you in the right direction to cleaning up motion data and they will explain it better than I might in this forum. I prefer other programs to motionbuilder for cleaning up and refining motion data but MB does a decent job and it is getting better. Diva, Evart, Calcium...all offer better tool sets for cleaning up motion data and they don't limit your marker count and Motion builder does; which can be daunting. Good luck.
