A novel direct manipulation technique for motion-editing using a timeline-based interface
Abstract Download PDFRecently, motion data is becoming increasingly available for creating computer animation. Motion capture is one of the systems that can generate such
motion data. However, it is not suitable to capture a lot of motion due to the cost of motion capture technique, and the difficulty of its postprocessing.
This paper presents a timeline-based motion-editing system that enables users to perform motion-editing tasks easily and quickly. A motion sequence is summarized and displayed in the 3D environment as a set of editable icons. Users can edit the motion data by performing a sequence of operations on a single key frame or over an interval. The recorded sequence is then propagated automatically to a set of target key frames or intervals, which can be either user defined or system defined.Etc...
