VRML Consortium Charter for Humanoid Animation Working Group
Motivation and Goals
Our aim is to specify a way of defining interchangeable humanoids
and animations in standard VRML 2.0 without extensions. Animations
include limb movements, facial expressions and lip synchronisation with
sound. Our goal is to allow people to author humanoids and animations independently.
It is our intent that our proposal work well with those of other working
groups in the VRML Consortium. However,
our proposal will be able to stand on its own and will not be dependent
on the efforts of any other group.
We will operate primarily by e-mail. Our initial proposal was submitted
to the VRML Review Board in the fall of 1997, and a revised proposal is
scheduled for submission at the end of March 1998.
