This paper introduces a model-based approach to capturing a persons shape, appearance and movement. A 3D animated model of a clothed persons whole-body shape and appearance is automatically constructed from a set of orthogonal view colour images. The reconstructed model of a person is then used together with the least-squares inverse-kinematics framework of Bregler and Malik (1998) to capture simple 3D movements from a video image sequence
