Cartoon Motion

  • Project date: March 2013 - 2016
  • Funded By: SFI
  • Role: Principal Investigator
Feature image
A skilled 3D animator can create the same expressiveness in virtual characters that is commonly found in traditional animation. However, this process can be very time consuming and expensive. In this novel project, we aim to address this issue by developing tools to automatically create motion that captures the idiosyncrasies of the human actor, yet incorporates artistic stylizations. Our industry collaborators are Brown Bag Films.

  • Role: Principal Investigator
Feature image
There is an increase in popularity of games using interactive storytelling which require virtual characters to deliver complex emotional performances. Current methods used for animating the faces of these characters fall short on delivery of emotion and expressiveness. Our novel project is the first to address this issue by running experiments on observers and using their opinions to alter the technology. Our industry collaborators are Havok.
