try the following code to link the avatar with the mainview
HTML Code:

avatar = viz.add('vcc_female.cfg')
view = viz.MainView
link =, view)

I correct this what you are looking for.
HTML Code:

import viz
import vizcam
avatar = viz.add('vcc_female.cfg')
handcontrol = vizcam.KeyboardCamera(forward=viz.KEY_UP,backward=viz.KEY_DOWN,turnRight=viz.KEY_RIGHT,turnLeft=viz.KEY_LEFT)
view = viz.MainView
link =, avatar)
pos = avatar.getPosition()

thanks for the reply,

the code works fine apart from the avatar is in the walking state even when you are not pressing anything. is there anyway to make the avatar stand still when no key is being pressed?

yes just define a function to check the avatar state

can you tell me how that is done please

I correct something like this:
HTML Code:

avatar_position = avatar.getPosition()
def avatarstate():
        global avatar_position
        if avatar_position == avatar.getPosition():
                avatar_position= avatar.getPosition()
vizact.ontimer(.05, avatarstate)

I hope this will be helpful
