Reccomend me some good Machinima tools

I’ve recently started making Machinima, and i wondered if anyone has some good addons to reccomend me.
So far i’ve got Catmull-Rom Cinematic Cameras, NPC control and NPC animation.

The problems with the later two is that you have to manually start sequences/movement, and you cannot get them to loop.

What i’d like to have is a tool that let’s me define movement paths for NPC’s that can have sequences tied to them, triggered by numpad input, and where you can loop sequences.

Does such a tool exist?

(And feel free to reccomend other usefull stuff too.)

NPC Control perhaps?

The problem with NPC control is that you have to trigger every action by using the tool on the actor, i want to be able to trigger by numpad or something similar.
Since i’m doing the films solo it’s hard otherwise.

Umm RagMorph? it works pretty good for making ragdolls run.

i need help, i need a couple of ragdolls made from art work done by my sister. i’ll make sure that the art work will be as clear as posible. if any one is intrested please e-mail at tripprules@yahoo.com.

You can make your own threads and this is the wrong section.
