H-Anim Working Group Draft Charter

From Web3D.org
Jump to: navigation, search


1. Overview

The H-Anim WG is intended to standardize human character and animation data for exchanging human characters in heterogeneous computing environments.The working group will first revise the international standard, ISO/IEC 19774: 2006 Humanoid Animation, to define standards for the exchange of human character motion by defining a motion interface and a human modeling structure.

2. Goals

  • Obtain sharable human character models and animations in heterogeneous computing environments
  • Provide methods for generating sharable human characters and animations
  • Research and develop standard technologies concerning human character modeling and animation

3. Teleconference schedule

  • The first Wednesday of every month at 5:00pm, PDT or PST
