A Seamless Shape for HANIM Compliant Bodies

Abstract

A standard for representing avatars in VRML worlds has been specified by the Humanoid Animation (HANIM) working group. Avatars based on these specifications are generally composed of a set of body surfaces, which do not ensure satisfying continuity between connected body parts. This paper proposes a generic method for performing real-time body deformations using JAVA and VRML. This method allows generating seamless bodies fully compatible with HANIM standard. CR
