Interim files listing part 5: Updated (2010) Motionbuilder-friendly release

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.

This dataset is the second Motionbuilder-friendly release.  In general, for Motionbuilder use you probably want to use this dataset, rather than the original conversions from 2008.

From the README file for this release:

I released the original Motionbuilder-friendly BVH conversion in 2008.  This 2010 release is very similar, but has a few minor adjustments to some of the joint rotations of the frame-one T pose which are intended to make retargeting look slightly better in most cases. This 2010 release doesn't touch any of the other frames and doesn't change the Motionbuilder-friendly joint naming convention of the 2008 release.  In general, you'll probably want to use this 2010 release.

I just downloaded your mocap files and they look very clean. I cant believe such thing exist. You saved so much time for so many people. I really appreciate this. Have a good one.
Thanks you so much.

This may be common now but for years I couldn't figure out how to batch process BVH files from free Univ resources like Carnegie to FBX with a Control Rig so I can drag and drop into Story Window. Even when others talked about I couldn't get it. So here's a quick tips and trick video showing how I do it. Forgive the sound I have a cheap mic. $10 will help me get a new one. 😁☀️
