Living Actor Avatar Laughter

Posted on Thu 06 Sep 2012
Living Actor technology has been augmented with avatar laughter animations, using cartoonish style characters. Animations were created by 3D computer graphics artists using the video database provided by Queen's University of Belfast. The body movements have been created by skeletal animation, visually matching real person movies. The facial animations have been created by morphing techniques, using again the laughter selected video sequences as a model. The future work will be to break down the animations into action units and adjust the laughter movements and facial expressions depending on input parameters like laughter type and intensity.
