So I tested motion capturing with the new Equestria Girls models for Source Fil. I've re-used one of my old mocap animations which you can also see HERE.
Works better than I expected! Also applying the movements is easier than I thought.

MP4 video with better quality available here: Dropbox (EpicLPer)

PS.: This is nearly unmodified footage from one XBox Kinect camera. Expect jittering and weird movements.

Heh, looks really nice! I'm surprised that it works with MoCap.

Nah, for this it's far too bad. I can try to make a newer thing showing of some real action, using MoCap data for real action scenes in SFM however is hard.

The mocap is impressive, but man, that face is heading into the uncanny valley.

I never expected those models to work with mocap. Nice find.

Not to mention that Kinect cameras are surprisingly good for cheap consumer-level mocap.

How much are they right now? I'm considering getting one for my SFM animations.

Looks like the Kinect that's specifically for Windows isn't available much of anywhere at the moment, I did find the XBox One version on Amazon for as little as $30 used, but that one needs a ~$50 adapter to work with a PC.

I actually have the normal XBox 360 one for ~100€ since the Windows one costed like double the price. It came with an USB adapter and all I needed were some drivers, nothing more. Plus the software to MoCap of course but that was a trial one.
