Animation system constructed in this paper, for the entire animation path will be a preliminary simulation, and the location information correction, correction algorithm of data frame of data between the calculated first, in view of the external rules to filter after correction, is not in this dimension is based on the physical models to compute and any rules limit the calculation of dimensions are independent, and these dimensions are not nested relationship between up and down. This system not only relies on the traditional tween function for animation mixing, but also filters the mixed results.


Through this Talk, you can see how to design this kind of mannequin-based animation mixture, with some limitations of objective performance, rather than just mathematical limitations.

Intended Audience

All the art and procedures involved in the animation
