Title: Virtual Marionettes: A System and Paradigm for Real-Time 3D Animation
Authors: Adi Bar-Lev, Alfred M. Bruckstein and Gershon Elber
Abstract: This paper describes a computer graphics system that enables users to define virtual marionette puppets, operate them using a relatively simple hardware input devices, and display the scene from a given viewpoint on the computer screen. This computerized marionette theater has the potential to become both a computer game for children, an interaction tool over the internet, enabling the creation of simultaneously viewed and operated marionette show by users on the World Wide Web, and, most importantly, a versatile and efficient professional animation system.
