Motion capture systems usually work in conjunction with complex 3D applications, such as 3D Studio Max by Kinetix or Maya by Alias/Wavefront. Once models have been created in these applications, motion capture systems provide the necessary data input to animate these models. The context of this paper introduces a simple motion capture system, which is integrated into a Web-based application, thus allowing HANIM humanoids to be animated using VRML and Java. Since Web browser/VRML plugin context is commonly available on computers, the presented motion capture application is easy to use on any platform. Taking benefit of a standard language as VRML makes the exploitation of produced animation easier than other commercial application with their specific formats
