I recorded actors expressing different emotions through their walking gait with a Vicon motion capture system. I then created full-light and point-light stimuli of those recorded gaits and showed them to perceivers. I then used the results from the point-light experiment to extend Troje's (2002) methodology to construct synthetically modelled point-light walker stimuli and again showed them to perceivers. The emotion identification rates within this data set were calculated from raw scores to Hu and Hc scores (described in detail by Wagner, 1993), and then further to Ht rates.
