Methods for capturing human body motion and deformation are constantly evolving. In order to analyse human body deformations, it is necessary to capture the body surface by performing a 3D or 4D scanning process.
Various tools for processing and analysing 3D and 4D scan data are available as open source and commercial software. These software and programming languages are compared. Therefore, an overview of commonly used scan data output files is described. Scan data analysis parameters for body deformation analysis are presented. Different software is compared with respect to these parameters. Finally, a self-developed framework for automatic scan data analysis is described. By using the presented framework, the processing of scan data can be made more efficient, thus making a valuable contribution to the development of realistic human models.
