Inbetweening for computer animation utilizing moving point constraints

  title={Inbetweening for computer animation utilizing moving point constraints},
  author={William T. Reeves},
This paper presents an approach to computerized inbetweening which allows the animator more control over an interpolation sequence than existing keyframe techniques. In our approach, the animator specifies in addition to a set of keyframe constraints, a set of new constraints called moving points. Moving points are curves in space and time which constrain both the trajectory and dynamics of certain points on the keyframes. The sets of keyframes and moving points form a constraint or patch… CONTINUE READING
