Interactive control of virtual characters through full-body movement requires accurately reproducing a performer's motion while accounting for surrounding obstacles. The authors' approach, based on a prioritized inverse kinematics solver, satisfies marker and preventive constraints simultaneously. Together with a coupled spine model, it yields virtual character postures that are close to the performer's.
