  • Goal-Directed Stepping with Momentum Control 

    Wu, Chun-Chih; Zordan, Victor (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    This paper proposes a technique for animating simulated characters to perform controlled steps. The desired step is controlled by high-level goals, namely step position and step duration. These stepping goals guide the ...
  • Augmenting Hand Animation with Three-dimensional Secondary Motion 

    Jain, Eakta; Sheikh, Yaser; Mahler, Moshe; Hodgins, Jessica (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Secondary motion, or the motion of objects in response to that of the primary character, is widely used to amplify the audience's response to the character's motion and to provide a connection to the environment. These ...
  • A Bayesian Interactive Optimization Approach to Procedural Animation Design 

    Brochu, Eric; Brochu, Tyson; Freitas, Nando de (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    eters. In many cases, the models are complex and the parameters unintuitive for non-experts. In this paper, we present an optimization method for setting parameters of a procedural fluid animation system by showing the ...

    Müller, Matthias; Chentanez, Nuttapong (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    We present a simple and fast method to add wrinkles to dynamic meshes such as simulated cloth or the skin of an animated character. To get the desired surface details, we attach a higher resolution wrinkle mesh to the ...
