Title:

    Automated Physics Based Animation of Fonts

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    We present a new method for automatic font animation, where the outlines of one or more glyphs are automatically segmented into sets of curves that can be efficiently controlled over time. This segmentation takes into account the directionality of similar segments, and allows arbitrary levels of subdivision. We showcase different examples of physics-based effects that can be driven by motion sensors in mobile devices to achieve novel and engaging text experiences. Our method works over existing off-the-shelf fonts, enabling new automatic text-based effects previously requiring lots of manual work.
