What I did is use one file with all the Key frames names and their frame numbers
then read that file. some like
When you read that file you check to see if the frame number in the file is
equal to or greater than what the animation frame is.
 If it is greater than then read the next line and interpolate between the two.

Here they are the poses and a win program to view them
