I started playing around with Kinect mocap in Cinema 4D a little over a month ago. It's pretty fun. It has it's limitations for sure but still could prove useful on certain projects. One thing that bothered me was the time it took setting up a rig and connecting it to the data that Ni-Mate creates. So I created this template to make it easier and I must say the character object is pretty cool and creating your own templates aren't that difficult. I reversed engineered one the built-in character templates to understand how they work and watched one of Bret Bay's Cineversity videos to help answer a few questions I had. Then, I built my own template. Hope you guys find it useful.
