An Integrated Computer Animation Environment
For those who are not familiar with computers and animation, there are three problems in making animation easily, i.e. making actors’ shapes, defining actors’ actions and directing animation. This paper introduces generating actors model, which consists of the shape module and the action module, and camera work model. We realized an integrated animation environment based on these models. The environment consists of three subsystems, making actors’ shape, defining actors’ actions, and directing animation (Fig. 1). Because three subsystems are tightly connected, user can browse among the subsystems.
