Hi Charlie

We have use Poser to model hand postures (reaching, pointing, grasping etc) for our research on motor imagery 
Brady N, Maguinness C, Ní Choisdealbha Á (2011). 'My Hand or Yours? Markedly Different Sensitivity to Egocentric and Allocentric Views in the Hand Laterality Task'. PLoS ONE , 6 (8). 
Pictures of the stimuli can be found at: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0023316

I am not sure how good the software would be at modelling the types of postures your colleague is interested in. An alternative would be to enact the exact postures and use motion tracking to code the positions of the wrist, finger tips and finger joints – we have played about with hand recordings using a CODA 3-D Motion Analysis System (Charnwood Dynamics, Leicestershire.) – I am sure they or some similar company would have texture wrapping software ....

> Dear All.  I have had an email (below) from a senior police officer from Cumbria who is interested in 3D modelling of hands.  Does anyone have any experience of this, or know of anyone who has?  Feel free to contact Richard directly.  I think this application is for a court case.  Regards, Charlie.
