skeleton = opengl + c + mocap

Hey,
I want to create a walking skeleton frame using c and mocap and opengl. my question actually is how will opengl be a part of the actual code ?

Thanks in advance for any help/examples.

OpenGL is going to be rendering the 3D Data; It doesn't do the animation or apply the mocap data to the skeleton.

Generally, too, it doesn't really represent the source data for the mocap stuff, so you'll need to find a way to get the mocap data applied to the skeleton model.

What platform are you running on?

windows and visual studio.
i 've got the code for reading and parsing the mocap data so i assume what im missing now is the code for visualizing the structure .

Yeah, you'll need to write the framework around visualizing the skeleton.

Check out a higher level API if you're not interested in completely rolling your own...

Ogre3D has some plug-in/mods/extensions/whatever you call them that you might be able to get a teeny bit closer to finished with.
