Let me tell you in more detail what i want maybe i am not explaining
it correctly ( i will look at those links) I have been using Blender
for years. I know animation but not an expert. If i make an aquarium i
want the fish to move on their own with their own A.I. (Self-
contained fish.) To make it clearer if i put a rock in it's path, the
fish will move around the rock and if a predator comes into the scene
the fish will scatter away at a high speed then return to normal when
the predator goes. I know this can be done in C++ I won't go into why
i am not using c++ just need to know if i can manipulate the bones in
realtime with python. can't find any info on that but someone must
know how to do it in python. Don't want keyframes just want true bone
