Problems with Motion Capture Data & Human Mesh

Hello everybody, i have huge problems to parent this armature with automatic weights to this mesh (scan).
Please take a look at the attached pic and text.

I would be sooo happy to get the right help here…
I`m despairing…


I noticed this brief tutorial with some suggestions for importing .bvh from mocap. It’s for 2.5, but I suspect it is applicable to current versions
