In this paper, we propose a new method to produce preparation behaviors using reinforcement learning and online posture optimization. Our trained controller drives a character to move to a target with the appropriate level of preparation, resulting in a humanlike behavior. We create scenes in which the character realistically moves in a complex environment and interacts with objects, such as crawling under and jumping over obstacles while walking.
