    A compact representation for articulated human motion



    While motion capture data provides a rich resource for representing articulated human motion, the huge size of such data makes reusing and editing difficult. Although there has been significant research into compression of mesh animation [Alexa and Müller 2000], little work on finding more compact representations for mocap data exists.
