I have spent most of this weekend watching videos, reading posts and playing with blender about doing animations/rigging. What I am missing is how to take an motion capture BVH file and a Mesh, human.3ds from TurboSquid and get them to play nicely together. I have had some success but I get parts of the mess not matched to a bone, and looks real funny.
Can some one recommend a youtube video or online tutorial on how to use BVH file from one source and a mesh from another and get them to work well.
I have seen this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mLseb477wU and it is very good but seems to start with a mess that has “empties” already defined and I do not understand how to do that.
