See if you can see the difference in vimeo.com/martinlynge/scruffy-movie-a.
Test participants watched two movies and was asked:
1. If they perceived the robots’ appearance as either mechanical or human.
2. If they perceived the robots’ movement as either smooth or rugged.
3. If they thought the robot to be believable or not.
From the analysed data it is concluded that subtle changes in animation is noticeable. However test participants thought that it did not make a difference in believability of the character.
*This version is one of two clips that was tested. Both clips contain the same errors thus the errors do not bias the results.
