While I begin to work through the process of attempting to get Google to restore the cgspeed Google Sites content, which contained a variety of notes and explanations about the different filesets, I'll post links to the various conversions here, in separate blog posts.
Here are the links to the original BVH conversion that I did in 2008. These files won't be particularly 3dsMax-friendly, nor are they Daz-friendly. They should, however, open in Motionbuilder and in general should be readable by any software that can parse the BVH file format.
In general you DON'T want to use this dataset - you'll probably be better off with the updated, 2010 Motionbuilder-friendly release.
The original source of all data here is Carnegie Mellon University's motion capture database, although CMU doesn't provide the data in BVH format. The files are contained in numbered subfolders, with numbering up through 144. Some folder numbers weren't used in the original CMU database, so don't be surprised that you don't get a complete set of folders numbered from 1 to 144.
