Using mcbiovision utility


Recommended Posts


I came across this older tutorial

And I know you use the mcbiovision utility to convert to cmd and bclip files, but having problems running it

There are 2 files, an mcbiovision script and a mcbiovision-bin binary.

If I try simply double clicking the binary a terminal window opens for a fraction of  a second, then closes.


If instead I try running the script with

$ sudo sh ./mcbiovision inputfile.bvh output


I get errors

./mcbiovision: 14: ./mcbiovision: source: not found


./mcbiovision-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libjemalloc.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Why do you need to run it with sudo? The steps should just be something like:

$ cd /opt/hfs16.5.XYZ
$ source houdini_setup
The Houdini 16.5.XYZ environment has been initialized.
$ cd ~/Documents/wherever_your_bvh_is
$ mcbiovision
  mcbiovision [-e -b -d] [-c] [-v] [-j object_script]
 [-o -w -f -s -i [-n -t -l chainfile]]
   infile [outfile]

This program converts a BioVision motion file to
a Houdini script & channel file(s).  Run the script
to create the geometry and channels.
