Follow Through

Follow through comes from the field of animation, and so is typically applied to sequences, the little pre-made animations that avatars generate to show the user?s mood, or interact bodily. These are usually discrete actions, performed for a set time and then stopped. Follow through occurs when part of an action needs to take longer than other parts. For example, when an avatar?s head swings, the hair on that head should continue moving even after the head has stopped, as it arcs round and settles back into place. In many VR sequence systems, this type of sub-animation does not happen, but when it does, it is known as follow through.
