Main problem in the domestic motion capture type production is that motion data are used even in the case when the human sensibility is needed. In other words it fails to give human images to the work, and production method only use motion capture data unconditionally and impetuously. Even though motion capture is effective and are various and applicable to various areas, it would cause enormous lose of capital and manual labor if these problems are not solved. In the present study, we compare motion capture with key animation production and analyze the merits and short comings of them. Also, we analyze them through the actual production and present the efficient method of key animation production when the expensive motion capturing devices are not available.
