The only thing you need in such an environment is a extensive grouping meta.

Hi Roland,

I can see the appeal of direct manual description of animations, particularly for a programmer. But I think that the result is an authoring environment that might not be useful for general users.

Jakob's post about robotics helped me wrap my head around the problem a bit. But I think even a good general underlying animation representation (that is built by some other more powerful system like a physics engine) isn't going to as general as "here's a scripting language that can manipulate your model."

If I understand, the grouping meta is what gives you 'non-destructive' animation - that is, the ability to transform the model without 'permanently changing' it. That part is, I think, necessary in almost any animation system.
