  Do you have a data file* you'd like to animate a Poser 3.0 figure
with? Then try MotionMaker, a freeware utility for Poser 3.0. 
MotionMaker will take data from a tab-delimited text file and use it to
move a Poser 3.0 figure. The documentation is in HTML format with
embedded QuickTime movies.

We presented MotionMaker to MetaCreations, but they showed no interest.
So now we present it to you for your consideration. You can download
MotionMaker (including source code) from the MotionMaker home page at
http://www.bcm.tmc.edu/cfbd/MotionMaker/

*Make sure the data is angular rotations for all body parts and
translations for the hips only (this is what Poser 3.0 likes). The
documentation contains full information and illustrations about this.
