C.H.A.S..... Motion capture is a way of getting high quality animations based on the way things move in real life...basically, the people doing the motion capture attach little glowy balls to specific spots on a stunt actor, then they record that actor performing different moves. Next, they have a computer track the motion of the balls on a computer and build a realistic representation of that stunt/whatever. Finally, they take this motion captured data and apply it to a character in the game. Voila..the animation looks very realistic.

So, that's more or less how it works.
