Anyone using pvmpov for animations?

Dear Fellow wulfers

I'm setting up a resonably small cluster for my sister who's into fashion
design, using povray to render human models with costumes.
This parts easy, but I can't get it to process animations via an .ini file -
it keeps segfaulting.

Please, this is off topic, so reply offlist, but I'm wondering if anyone
uses beowulf clusters specifically for pvmpov.

Also, know of any open-source motion-capture software for Linux?
Could make bending the models a little quicker if it would just wrap around
a stick model sampled from a video source.

Thanks heaps for your time!!
