CG Restoration of a Historical Noh Stage and Its Use for Edutainment
Japan’s oldest Noh stage has been restored using CG. The painting of pine trees on a wall, which is severely damaged by the weather, has been restored and painted based on several historical and aesthetical investigations. The painting was texture-mapped onto the CG model giving the atmosphere of the stage when it was originally built. By using the CG Noh stage and motion capture data of a Noh play performed by a professional player, several kinds of edutaiment contents have been produced. Not only an ordinary character animation of a Noh play on the restored stage, but also walk-through animation of a scene which might be observed by the player during a play was created, which might be useful for introductory enlightenment.
