Uhhm… might be you accidently posted in the wrong forum?
This one is LightWave specific, so there is only a rather slim chance you get your info here.
Well, LightWave 3D has a Device Manager in its Virtual Studio feature. If your input comes from either HID, InterSense or PlayStation Move.Me managers, you can be able to translate the arm motion interactively (real-time) within LightWave and play a realistic preview in VPR viewer.
There’s a demo from Siggraph 2012:
They have also NevronMotion (a motion retargeting plugin) working with Kinetic sensor.
