It is possible to do Motion Capture () in Linux using free software with the GPL licence.

The qavimator project (http://www.qavimator.org/#screenshots) can produce .bvh files.

The .bvh-files can be used in Blender to produce nice animations as described here http://pagesperso-orange.fr/jb.perin...Animation.html

and here http://centralsource.com/blender/bvh/files.htm

with a nice video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mLseb477wU

Well, I have not tried it myself, but it does look feasible.

Anyone with experience doing this or any other tips for animators?
