There is another body scanning application called Uraniom that apparently works with R200.
You can also scan a full body with the R200's 3D scan, output an OBJ format model file and then import it into a proper 3D modeling package such as Blender to edit it further.
A professional 3D animator is bound to prefer to use advanced tools to create their models instead of "just" RealSense. I do not believe you have wasted your money by any means though. If you are new to animation, RealSense scanning could be a vital tool to develop your skills and understanding so that you can then graduate to professional modeling software such as ZSculpt, 3DS Max and Maya.
This guide to RealSense scanning should be helpful too.
RealSense comes with a 3D scanning application called 3D Scan that can be used for real-time scanning with the R200. You can find it using the Sample Browser application. The launcher for this is usually installed in a folder called Intel RealSense SDK Gold that is put on your computer desktop when you install the SDK.
Here's a real-time scan of me using the application
And here is a good guide to real-time scanning with the camera and importing the model into another program.
Edit: there is also a 3D scanning program called Cappasity that can be used with R200.
