I am looking for character animation library which can be included in my game engine.

I prefer FOSS but, paid is good if it's price is reasonable.

So, far what Ive found is Cal3d.

Can anyone tell, what are the other options?

I am also interested in Havok Animation which comes in the free bundle of Havok. Any thoughts about this one?

You could try Animadead, but that's about as dead as Cal3d. Assimp is also a possibility if you design your models using some sort of modeling software. There may be better options out there though... This gamedev post may be helpful.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Assimp looks pretty cool to me. But, I dont get the argument of "using some sort of modeling software". Assimp is able to work with various files. Am i missing something, cause, i find it a complete solution. \$\endgroup\$ – Quazi Irfan Jul 3 '11 at 17:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thinking back on it, I'm not sure what I was getting at either. Perhaps, it was just that Assimp's primary focus seems to be model importing rather than character animation, although it clearly does address animation. \$\endgroup\$ – Ryan Jul 3 '11 at 18:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeh, but do you know any engine using Assimp as their animation library? \$\endgroup\$ – Quazi Irfan Jul 4 '11 at 7:09

Ive also noticed I can use ogre animation code. Though, I wonder how easy/hard its gonna be. But, its also another possibility.
