I tried to post a video on the movies site, but it failed, for some reason. So I thought I would post a link here.
This video demonstrates a script I am working on that provides a quick look at The Movies animation files by creating a crude scene in blender with basic armatures and props and then loading the animation data on to them. It currently can handle animations with one or two animated objects either armatures or props. Not all prop types or armatures are supported, but there are hundreds of files that fall into this category.
Here is a list of all the animation files in the movies game. anim_catalog.
Here is a link to the video on https://vimeo.com/325045630
