Saving, Loading, And Using Poses & Gestures
Each set of parameters outlined above can be edited, saved and loaded. By having a good set of libraries of poses a personalized character of expression can drive the Avatars performance during speaking and idling sequences, offering a visual prosody so to speak. By offsetting the lerp durations between various gestures and poses complex non-repetitive motion can arise keeping within the gesticular context and range specified when creating and editing the pose and gesture libraries. The SILVIA brain file can be set up so a Response is tagged with gesture and pose names, duration, looping, preset parameter ranges and IK targeting per speaking performance, listening response and idling. SSML tags can be read from TTS speech synthesis tracks and linked to driving extended ranges or loading lists of gestures and/or poses to use.
