Behavioural Animation

Behavioural animation is an umbrella term for many different animation techniques, all of which share in common that rather than using set frames at set times, the AI of the creature being animated, determines what it is going to do, and then the appropriate animation for that behaviour is initiated. Typically behavioural animation is procedural.

One of those rarest of rare books: An animation tome that is not tied down to a specific package. Instead, expect a hefty dose of mathematics, as the author leads you through a variety of animation techniques, both 2D and 3D, from a formulae and expression based perspective.





Timing for Animation by this pair of authors, is back in print. This book, over 20 years old, was and still is the definitive tome for animation. Whether drawn sculpted or CGI, making something move realistically is all about timing. Timing first, second, and last. When to move, when not to move, what to move, and how much to move.





There always seems to be an artificial disconnect between the skillset necessary to draw in 2D and that necessary to animate with CGI. Many books treat it as if you have to unlearn all you know from one, to learn the other, even when that is clearly not the case. This tome shows why it is not.





This tome is, as the4 title suggests, more of an overview for the subject than a detailed how-to. It covers everything from the very basics of computerised model animation, right through rigging and boning, on to timing and lighting ? but it does so without going into painstaking detail on any one topic.





This book is an animation expert's attempt to ?dump his kit? as the author puts it, and share with others the fundamentals of animation that are not generally taught outside of industry practice, and always were taught behind closed doors.

The Augmented Reality Skyline
In mid December 2008, Nokia designer and human behavioural researcher Jan Chipchase posed the question on what the skyline of our towns and cities would look like under the tinting of augmented reality displays, filtering systems, and projection technologies.



Much of the book is understandably dedicated to cinematography and animation using theatric props. However, even these sections provide insight on how to create an interactive 3D area that achieves dramatic effect almost effortlessly for those entering it, or different approaches to creating a winged avian, that the mind of a visitor will still process as a graceful bird.

virtual learning centre using the power of animation and simulation
This report from Fort Hays State University in the US, is a refreshing look at how educational establishments are independently starting to make use of VR to bolster learning. In this case, via the creation of a virtual learning centre using the power of animation and simulation.
