We present an experiment designed to reveal some of the key features necessary for conveying creature motion. The ultimate goal is to find the minimal representation necessary to communicate recognizable locomotion or traits that may be communicated to the viewer through motion such as size and attitude. Motion and form are separable for digital characters(More)
We present an experiment designed to reveal some of the key features necessary for conveying creature motion. Humans can reliably identify animals shown in minimal form using Point Light Display (PLD) representations, but it is unclear what information they use when doing so. The <i>ultimate</i> goal for this research is to find recognizable traits that may(More)
A digital creature's performance can be thought of as a combination of specifically defined motion and form; a combination that allows the viewer to comprehend the creature's action and intent. Computer graphics offers a variety of methods for defining motion including key-frame animation, data-driven action, rule-based and physically-based motion. However,(More)
To assess the effect of a breast self-examination (BSE) teaching program on retention of BSE knowledge and accuracy of BSE performance among women of low socioeconomic class, a pretest-posttest control group design with random assignment to groups was given to women at a Southeastern urban clinic. One hundred eighty women were pretested, after which the(More)
