Hello :
I would like to use Animata within Field. Do you think that would be
possible ?
Animata is an open-source package developed by the Kitchen in
Budapest :
Thank you for your input.

Seems like it wants to be talked to over OSC:

Start here:

Sure, I could control the Animata puppets from Field
using OSC, but how do I recuperate the images from
Animata so that they can be composited in a 2.5D
environment with other things such as NPCs/autonomous
characters, trees, flowers, background landscapes, etc ?
This is my problem.

Does Field have libraries for moving sprites ?

Does Field allow to animate articulated characters ?
(that's what Animata does - animate a 2D mesh)

I was thinking about something like Syphon
between Animata and Field

We have code for Field as a Syphon client (although it hasn't been tested much since the repository reorganization, it's pretty straightforward). The thing I can't control is whether Animata can be a Syphon server. If it can, then we're off to the races...
