I'm looking for a way to create a new Empty in the average center of 2-3 other Empties. (See Image 1) Image 1; Layout of empties

The original Empties come from motion capture points on an actor. I'll be using this new Empty to manipulate a bone within a rig. (See Image 2) The original Empties will be moving throughout the scene. IS this possible natively through Blender? Or will I need an Add-on or an original script?

Or is there another solution to my problem? Possibly using all 3 of the original empties to manipulate the joint? I've slipped slightly out of my depth here.

Using Blender 2.82

You can set the cursor to the midpoint of those Empties and create a new Empty at the cursor location: enter image description here

  1. Select your empties
  2. Set the Transform Pivot Point to Median Point
  3. Place the cursor at this middle point: Right Click to show the Object Context Menu > Snap > Cursor To Selected (or press Shift + S > Cursor To Selected)
  4. Create the Empty: Shift + A > Empty
