Learning-Based Interactive Character Animation: Expressing Emotions through Motion


Keywords : Animation, Machine Learning


Our work will be dedicated to exploring new machine learning-based techniques to improve the animation process with a focus on accessibility. The developed methods should improve the animator workflow without getting in the way of artistic creativity, and not depend on unrealistic amounts of existing data. One of our key ideas will be to mix two families of approaches: procedural motion generator and data-driven motion  analysis.
