I have gotten back into Second Life after nearly a ten year absence. I am interested in doing Machinima of my music I have recorded and would like to have a number of Non Player Characters that I control with animations like dancing in the videos. I am left somewhat confused about how to go about this after having read some things on the internet about SL:bots, Scripted Agents, etc. Is there a good resource describing in detail how to do this? I need to understand the steps to be able to do this. Something like this: Create an Account Mark the Account as Scripted Agent Start a Client to Control the Scripted Agent Animate the Characters I have logged in with two clients controlling two characters before but that seems like a lot of wasted PC resources since I am only playing my main character. The main questions I have are: Can I run a scripted agent avatar without having a running SL Viewer on my desktop for each NPC I set up? Is there a lightweight client that could launch them instead of the Viewer Do I need to run a client at all? I have read about smartbots and the services, but, since I am just using these NPCs for shooting the videos and not as chat bots or greeters it seems an overkill Also I have a pretty powerful PC and a lot of bandwidth so paying for this type of service seems like just spending money Is there any software I can buy or get for free that will do what I want to do? Thanks for reading this.
