Animata - Real-Time Animation

Animata is an open source tool that allows you to create real-time animation. Could be an interesting tool for performance art or for live visuals at a concert. It also gives students a sense of how character rigging works.

  1. That is so cool! My students are going to go crazy over this! I would love to see more examples of student created work - any ideas on where to find them?

  2. This software was developed by a couple of Digital Artists for their own purposes who then released it onto the web without much tech support or examples. Your best bet is to search YouTube for Animata videos. I'm not sure if other teachers are using this application in their classrooms yet. You can tell your students they are pioneers using a new application. I would love to see examples if your students have a chance to experiment.
