Interaction Capture and Synthesis
Interaction Capture extends motion capture to explicitly include the capture of contact phenomena. To synthesize new interaction, this method uses estimates of intended motion and passive response to contact in a physically based simulation.

Capturing and Animating Skin Deformation in Human Motion
Using a commercial motion capture system and a very large marker set, this technique captures and animates dynamic skin deformation such as bending, bulging, jiggling, and stretching.

Compression of Motion Capture Databases
A lossy compression algorithm for large databases of motion capture data. This method can compress 1080MB of motion capture data into 35.5MB (30:1 compression ratio) with little visible degradation while maintaining fast compression and decompression.
