Animation Mannequin

Posted: February 13, 2013
I am working on a project to 3d animate using a simple mannequin.

The mannequin would control a rigged character for character animation.

I just wanted to know what anyone thought of the idea and I made a survey to gather responses. (Pm me or check my profile, i'm a noob on this forum so it won't let me post links)

The survey is really important for me for deciding if I want to try to start-up with limited joints like a play-mobile action figure, or go much towards full human joint functionality thereby increasing the price.

Any responses would be greatly appreciated, I really need to gauge this before I try to move forward. If you send the link to the survey to anyone you know who this would be relevant to, that would be great too.

I really need to build support for this before I'll be able to move it forward. Thanks!

Hi bhain.
How are you going to do this? Motion capture?
If yes, why use a mannequin instead of a real human actor?
