Abstract

The goal of the work presented in this paper is to develop a web based authoring tool to create the physical appearance of a virtual character and to provide its behaviour. One of the main characteristics of this tool is its simplicity to create a virtual character, provide its behaviour and the way to integrate it anywhere. The appearance of each virtual character and its behaviour are stored in a database. In order to specify the behaviour, the standard BML (Behaviour Markup Language) is used. It is interpreted by a BML Parser module that indicates to the animation engine how the virtual character has to act. The authoring tool is tested creating different virtual characters and integrating them in two unrelated applications with different roles.
