In this paper we describe a layered approach to simplify character animation in X3D. Therefore, we present an interface and control language for specifying and synchronizing animations and similar actions at a higher level. Because this requires to have the accordant features on the lower X3D-based levels, we furthermore propose a set of nodes for realizing these demands. This includes for instance an audio node for text-to-speech that automatically calculates the actual phonemes and weighting… CONTINUE READING
