Title:

    Directable crowd animation

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    We present an interactive system for creating directable crowd animation, focusing on making the CG crowd shots suited especially for a TV program. Our system cannot make such “advanced” crowd animations as those for a blockbuster movie, which were made, for example, using AI techniques. However, our system allows a user to quickly make the crowd scenes under a limited time and budget. Our “handy” crowd system is currently available as a Maya plug-in our workplace, offering several features, which we believe would be useful enough to quickly make various crowd shots.
