I'd like to announce the release of TouchAnimator for the Apple iPad. TouchAnimator is a 3D character animation program that uses the touch interface of the iPad to intuitively pose and animate pre-rigged characters. Here's a promotional video that shows the interface.

I've also included a short tutorial video explaining the features of the software:

You can find out more about the software at it's website:

Finally, you can purchase TouchAnimator on the Apple App Store here:

Updates are on the way. I originally developed this as an in-house tool. So, I have plans to add more features in the near future.

Looks great, especially good for education. Can animated skeletons be exported to Lightwave? Is there a selection of frame rates?

TouchAnimator exports to a simple text format that could be read by any software that has a plugin to read the data. At this point I have only written a plugin for Blender. I hope to write plugins for Lightwave and Maya, but I don't know their scripting languages yet. On the TouchAnimtor website I haveinfo on writing plugins for TouchAnimator if you want to write your own.

As for the frame rate it only runs at 30 fps

I am considering creating an Android version, but only if I see a high enough demand.

Just got a Nexus7, and I would request an Android version.

PHLEEZE!

If you could add a plugin for FBX, I think we'd be good... ;-)

Ok. I think I have had enough interest here and in other forums I've posted to do an Android version. I'll let everyone know when it's released.
