yeah, I've been trying to program "characters" like skeleton figures that
can walk and move and stuff like that. it's getting really complex and hard, figuring out coords for arms/torso/shoulders/legs/neck/head/knees...
it get really time consuming.

I was just wondering if there was another way, maybe a 3d class or some kind of ide for 3d java graphics programming, where you can drag objects, mould shape and create scenes for walking and differnet positions but that can be manipulated by java code.

if there is such a thing please let me know what, cause ill buy it

thanks a lot for the replies.

There are a lot of 3d modeling applications.

3D Studio Max

Just to name a few. What you need to find is a way to import models into your application. Most of the popular Java 3D API's have such features. What are you using for 3D rendering in Java?
