2003 (English)In: Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM), Linköping University Electronic Press, 2003, 49-56Conference paper (Refereed)
While face animation is still considered one of the toughesttasks in computer animation, its potential application range israpidly moving from the classical field of film production intogames, communications, news delivery and commerce. Tosupport such novel applications, it is important to enableproduction and delivery of face animation on a wide range ofplatforms, from high-end animation systems to the web, gameconsoles and mobile phones. Our goal is to offer a frameworkof tools interconnected by standard formats and protocols andcapable of supporting any imaginable application involvingface animation with the desired level of animation quality,automatic production wherever it is possible, and delivery ona wide range of platforms. While this is clearly an ongoingtask, we present the current state of development along withseveral case studies showing that a wide range of applicationsis already enabled.
