We describe how to automatically synthesize motion controllers for locomotive tasks involving animated characters modeled as 3D mass-spring lattices. The motion controllers determine an actuation sequence based on elapsed time, not physical state; actuation is represented economically using a canonical set of global lattice deformations; and stochastic search is used to determine effective values for the controller parameters. Our algorithm generates controllers that produce stylistic, visually… CONTINUE READING
