** The one from 2006, [[https://ia601009.us.archive.org/14/items/bigdog2stupid_gmail/web%20friendly%20reel.mp4 in particular]], has a female character with unnatural Jigglepsychics with her BoobsofSteel; which explains why the animator tried so far to use her expressions (which isn't really a [[UncannyValley good idea]]. But the next half which shows the models have the same girl except different [[BoobsandButtPose boob and butt size]]; albeit the latter much larger than her breast themselves; plus the posture and color schemes. Even the [[http://web.archive.org/web/20120315222227if_/http://www.gradshow.com/gallery/2006/digital/ChristouVangelis.jpg profile picture is different from the demo reel itself]] in which her boobs much bigger; probably resembling more of [[PrinceofPersia]] and [[TombRaider Lara Croft]].

* This sorta fits in some computer-animated college demo reels.

* The martians in ''Film/JohnCarter''. Interestingly enough, the film was directed by Andrew Stanton (whose old company, {{Pixar}}, wasn't very big on the process).

It has a few advantages over traditionally animating something: namely, it is less time-consuming and makes giving them lifelike movement much easier. (Though this can be a [[UncannyValley bad thing]].)

* Creator/RobertZemeckis is fond of this: he used it to create ''WesternAnimation/MonsterHouse'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePolarExpress'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf 2007}}'', ''Film/AChristmasCarol2009'', and ''Film/MarsNeedsMoms''. For some viewers, the results dwell deep in the UncannyValley.

* Capcom's ''VideoGame/ClockTower Clock Tower 3'' uses motion capture in its cut scenes.
* ''{{Primal}}'' (2003) When it works, it works really well. A couple of times it seems to be wildly overdone, perhaps to draw attention to the fact that it's motion capture.

* In ''HappyFeet'', most of the penguins sing, and so have talented singers for voice actors. Mumble, on the other hand, tap dances, so the producers brought in (and credited) famous tap-dancer Savion Glover to do the motion capture just for Mumble.
