Mocapgrams are helpful tools for visualising a longer segment of mocap data. They allow easy visualisation of recurring patterns and periodicities in the mocapdata, and interconnectivity between markers.

The position coordinates of each marker are normalised and projected onto an RGB colorspace. XYZ => RGB.
