Hello, I hope can help, I am looking for a engine me of 3d that he allows me to manipulate avatar in real time, for example, avatar of a person, mean to him in run time that moves the arm to a height specifies, I have seen that what does most of the engine is to call a predefined animation, but I do not occupy it thus since of this form always she would move of the same form, and want that she moves as she indicates the user.

Thanks for its attention.

Cal3d might help you here.

From the Cal3d FAQ:
“With a little work, you can fully manipulate the individual parts of your characters. This is useful when you want to create truly dynamic motion at runtime without the aid of predefined animations. For instance, if you wanted your character’s head to turn as a car goes past him, you could control the head’s rotation directly to keep facing the moving car.”

If what you want is very simple, it is not difficult to do this on your own however. Perhaps if you elaborate on the project you plan to do, we can help out further.
