This paper explores a method for re-sequencing an existing set of animation, specifically motion capture data, to generate new motion. Re-using animation is helpful in designing virtual environments and creating video games for reasons of cost and efficiency. This paper demonstrates that through nonlinear dimensionality reduction and frame re-sequencing, visually compelling motion can be produced from a set of motion capture data. The technique presented uses Isomap and ST-Isomap to reduce the… CONTINUE READING
