First of all, sorry for my English.
I want to post something that could be an ispiration for the coders working on the new animation system.
I think that a similar tool for Blender would be great (please see the video demonstration in the page):
Itís a script for 3dsmax, developed on the basis of a script for XSI, that you can see in the following thread:
Would be fine to use this script in conjunction with a script similar to this one that allow to setup a character skeleton (watch the video, please)
Thank you and good work.
Also this one for Inspiration:
Look this Scater Boy on the Left and some other Characters in this Pages they have B-Bones!
Its a Good Idea if you have the possibility to Add Material or Texture for B-Bones and Render this like Meshes!!! Not only in 3Dwindow Rendering!
Also you can Edit the B- Bones in Pose Mode! Thats only a Idea!
So you can Animate and Render nice Characters like this also (Only Bones....b-bones)!
