Sandbox Release #3: Motion Synthesis Library
Alex J. Champandard on November 13, 2008
The third release of AiGameDev.com's "industrial strength prototyping environment" — a.k.a. AI sandbox — takes a major step towards better animation quality in general. It includes a library for motion synthesis based on motion graphs, improved low-level playback thanks to cascaded blend tree that can deal with n-way blends using a continuous interpolation strategy. The library is also used to automatically process animation clips to find transitions between the best frames, and will serve as a basis for future tools based on this functionality.
