Short description: File format for 3D animations

The Biovision Hierarchy (BVH) character animation file format was developed by Biovision, a defunct motion capture services company, to give motion capture data to customers. This format largely displaced an earlier format Biovision providing skeleton hierarchy information as well as motion data.

As of 2019, BVH is widely used and most 3D applications support importing and exporting files in this format.
