Animata is a real-time animation software, designed to create
interactive background projections for concerts, theatre and dance
performances, and promotional screenings.

The peculiarity of the software is that the animation - the movement
of the puppets, the changes of the background - is generated in
real-time, making continuous interaction possible. This ability also
permits that physical sensors, cameras or other environmental
variables can be attached to the animation of characters, creating a
cartoon reacting to its environment. For example, it is quite simple
to create a virtual puppet band reacting to live audio input, or set
up a scene of drawn characters controlled by the movement of dancers.

In contrast with the traditional 3D animation programs, creating
characters in Animata is quite simple and takes only a few minutes.
On the basis of the still images, which serve as the skeleton of the
puppets, we produce a network of triangles, some parts of which we
link with the bone structure. The  movement of the bones is based on
a physical model, which allows the characters to be easily moved.

Animata can be connected with widespread programming environments
used by multimedia developers and artists in order to make use of the
possibilities of these applications in the fields of image editing,
sound analysis, or motion capture.

Current version is 004.

The package provides one executable, and some examples.

I am interested in packaging, because live animation it involves
live animation, like the Toonloop software I work on. (whish is
already in Debian)

This is an automatic email to change the status of animata back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting animata, please send a mail to
<> with:

 retitle 611044 ITP: animata -- real-time animation software
 owner 611044 !

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
Lucas, for the QA team <>
