BVHReader

Hey guys!
I have been working with moCaps, and most moCap research databases are in BVH format. I was converting it all in MotionBuilder, avoiding to write my own BVHReader. But in order to scale, this was unavoidable.
So I have written a very simple BVHReader (read only, no intention in writing a writer) for the most common BVH cases, which are: only root has translation and rotations, joints have local rotations.
I have made the code available in my fabricUtils extension (https://github.com/gustavoeb/fabricUtils) although it has no dependencies (aside from the sample file) on the rest of the extension. So it is easy to rip it apart from the rest.
Hope this can be useful to other people.

Best regards,
Gustavo.

Ps: Here are some databases you can try:
