Panda Puppet: Head Control Test #1
After spending the day working out several bugs, here is a quick test of the head control system I am programming for Panda Puppet. It's nothing fancy, just some basic head movement (up/down, right/left, tilt), but it works quite nicely. The head is controlled using a joystick, but almost any kind of device imaginable could be used as a controller. If you've read my last post on the control system, this is an example of direct control.
In the morning I'm going to tinker with this a bit to get some smoother animation and add some eyes and basic facial expressions so I can start playing with poses.
