Summary: Modern motion capturing systems can accurately store human motion with high precision. Editing this kind of data is troublesome, due to the amount and complexity of data. In this paper, we present a method for decoupling the aspects of human motion that are strictly related to locomotion and balance, from other movements that may convey expressiveness and intentionality. We then demonstrate how this decoupling can be useful in creating variations of the original motion, or in mixing different actions together.
