Vector-Mapping Method for Motion Retargeting of the Virtual Articulated Figures and Its Application
Motion Retargeting is a movement edition technology that designed for motion capture data of the production of computer animation. The technology of Motion Retargeting now has two problems - large databases and the complexity of the algorithm increased rapidly with the joints increasing. According to this, the authors propose a new method, Vector-Mapping method of motion retargeting. The initial movement curve is transferred to vectorization and mapped to the target figure. The virtual figure is setting by IK, which moved along the trajectory curve in order to achieve motion retargeting. Finally, they implemented several experiments based on this method and described some ideal results in this paper.
