Looking to break free from traditional, primitive animation techniques such as key framing and reap the many benefits from AI, physics simulation, and procedural animation? Kevin He, founder and CEO of DeepMotion, gives a short introduction to these technologies and how they
Tag: Procedural Character Animation
Our demos are often designed to show how intelligent simulation can synthesize even the most complex physical skills—from creating digital Basketball players to simulated stunt men. However, our most recent experiment focuses on simulating something more subtle: body language. Specifically, argumentative gesturing in a multi-character scenario.
Each of the
Hair animation remains one of the most difficult areas of character creation. Mimicking the collective, but not altogether uniform, motion of thousands of flexible, wispy strands is a task that even expert animators find daunting. Lifelike hair animation can elevate an otherwise
Researchers from DeepMotion and CMU have taught virtual basketball players entirely physically simulated dribbling skills.
Top tier Basketball players exhibit powerful upper body dexterity, lower body agility, and mastery of ball coordination. When training physically simulated characters basketball skills, these competing talents must also be held in balance. While AAA
