Character Animation Library
Bruno Heidelberger sent along the following announcement regarding the initial release of the Cal3D character animation library:
I would like to announce the initial release of Cal3D, a free skeletal-based
character animation library. Originally designed to be used in a 3d client
for WorldForge, it evolved into a stand-alone product which can be used in
many different kinds of projects.
This release is significant due to the extreme scarcity of Free Software options for skeletal-based animation, and thus may provide a very important advancement for Free Game development projects. The WorldForge project is especially excited about the potentials this new product provides, and anticipates growing a sizable library of skeletal models for free game developers to use in their games.
