Frustrated Character Animator?


The Second Life Herald have just reported on a free tool to create and edit BVH files, that is, to create and edit character animations as used by avatars in Second Life. Essentially it's a very light weight alternative to stumping up for Poser.

Big deal! I hear you say, we don't need you to tell us what the herald has on the front page. But what the Herald doesn't mention is that you can download Avimator in Windows, Mac and Linux flavours!

Now, I am well aware that it's possible to do this kind of magic in blender, but unless you know blender it might as well be magic.

Second Life forum post with more information, as usual you have to be logged in :)
