2020 IMA: VW: IMA seeks help on project converting thousands of public domain motion capture animations for use in OpenSim.

IMA seeks help on project 
converting thousands of 
public domain motion capture animations 
for use in OpenSim.

In virtual worlds, you dance with an animation. IMA has thousands of public domain motion capture animations that could benefit OpenSim if they were converted to SL internal animation format.   IMA needs an experienced animator to develop a conversion procedure. 





  • CMU Graphics Lab Motion Capture Database
  • This dataset is free for use in research projects.
  • You may include this data in commercially-sold products,
  • but you may not resell this data directly, even in converted form.
  • If you publish results obtained using this data, we would appreciate it
  • if you would send the citation to your published paper to,
  • and also would add this text to your acknowledgments section:
  • The data used in this project was obtained from
  • The database was created with funding from NSF EIA-0196217.
