We often imagine what it would be like to perform like a professional dancer or an action star. However, because our physical skills are insufficient, the resulting performance is poor. To make it appear to be much better, we have developed a method for quickly and easily choreographing an amateur performer in a video utilizing a video example of a professional performance. Our method allows the amateur performance to be edited by transferring the timing and poses of the professional performance.
