Hi All,

I am not sure where the best category to post my questions so I will post in more than one.
I am wondering if there is a way to take the output of content I create in 3D animation packages such as iClone, Lightwave 3D etc. and set it up in such a way that my friends and family can interact with it on the internet? More specifically make interactive changes to content in real-time such as changes in props clothes etc.
I have investigated, Flash builder/flash Catalyst and Fireworks. I am also thinking a game engine might come into play. All look like they may have potential to do something like this. I am not a programmer though I am willing to learn scripting languages like L Script and Python. I hope some combination of this or other software will work so that can make this possible. Any thoughts or experience on this? Thanks.

for interactive web content your best bet is indeed Flash.

Unity 3d could also be your bff... http://unity3d.com/
they have a free indie version, very usable, no major restriction, unless you are planning on a big dead serious game project, but you could use unity for creating all kinds of 3d interactive effects for other that game purposes.
