H-Animator (version 0.2):

H-Animator is a visual tool which lets you model, reuse and share X3D animations for H-Anim humanoids.

With this tool you can:

  • create standard H-Anim humanoids starting from existing X3D meshes;
  • visually model simple X3D humanoid animations, even if you don't know the X3D language;
  • compose complex animations by visually concatenating different simple ones.

To immediately start playing with H-animator, the package also includes the simple Helena humanoid and a small set of simple animations (under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial license).
