Mocapdata.com Retargeting

I have been playing around with the free BVH offering at http://mocapdata.com.
Inside of Houdini I am able to retarget the mocap files to the Make Human rig.

The character in the skirt is using the Unity rig and the character in the shorts is using the Ergonomy rig type.

Here is an example of a walk-in-place while looking around mocap.

I also implemented skeletal bones limits as described in the Second Life wiki.

This nearly eliminates shoulder breakup in extreme poses.

Atom: Did you use the included Makewalk script for these or did you use something special inside of Houdini.. In other words.... what was your process. I have been struggling with Blender,.bvh file,s and Makewalk for the last 18 month.
But that struggle is more me not understanding the process rather than anything wrong with those programs and the fact that I have to work for a living and just dabble in CGI/3D as a hobby.

Very cool, especially the yoga poses.

I also want to know if MakeWalk or some other retargeting script was used...

No special script, just using the manual shelf tools in the Houdini app.
This thread covers some of my various attempts, which eventually led me to manually aligning the rig to the mocap data.
