The Kinect has limitations in terms of the type of Mo-Cap you can do, but with a multiplayer engine supporting multiple Kinects and real time presentation of the interaction you’re getting 80% of what you need produced for a tiny percentage of the cost of a proper mo-cap suite and a capable animation clean up tool to render your final product.
