Does anyone need Mocap data?

Hi,
I’m interested in knowing if anyone needs mocap data?
We are considering inviting a Karate world champion for a mocap shoot as well as a professional dancer and are interested in knowing if anyone here needs mocap movements?
Do you all animate with keyframes or with do your own mocap with a kinect?
What kind of Mocap data would you need?

Thank you
Camille

A lot of people can utilize motion capture. It simply makes things far more realistic than can be achieved with merely moving a model in keyframe. And of course, purchasing such animations is cheaper than the thousands of dollars that a proper professional mocap setup costs. Also while I can see great advantages from melee fist animations there are limitations in that such actions might not align with many of the desired physical actions. But things like choke holds, throws, and dragging a person would all be great inclusions into such a set.

Personally I have needs for such things as climbing over a wall, crawling along the ground, tossing an object, tossing an object from cover, and pushing / pulling large object.
