A Motion Editing System for Handling Autonomous Creation of Character Animation

  • Published : 2001.10.01


A motion handling technique that transforms existing animation motion data to a mathematically well-defined form. The transformed data can be utilized in any kind of autonomous motion creation process that handles such cases as changed environment, structure (kinematic / dynamic) modification, or changed constraints. To overcome the computational burden of traditional spacetime optimization, we divide full motion data frame into several parts, and we applied the transformation technique to each part using an optimizing tool(CFSQP). To show Ire feasibility of the proposed method, a comparison study results with traditional technique is included.
