Proof of Concept | Short Film: AZUREUS RISING
Director: DAVID WEINSTEIN
Details: Azureus Rising is an action adventure epic chronicling the origin of the freedom fighter known as Azureus. Based on the award winning short film, Azureus Rising is a 3D animated feature film concept that is unlike anything ever produced for the screen. A passion project of director David Weinstein, the concept was inspired by The Lion King and the original Star Wars trilogy.
Deformation Learning is based on Smooth Skinning Decomposition with Rigid Bones (SSDR), the word "Learning" is picked from Machine Learning, I think it's more intuitive than "decomposition". Similar to Hans Godard's Skinning Converter, this tool can convert any deformation into skinning, can be used to reduce the amount of complexity involved with the deformations and storage spaces needed. For anyone who wants to crack the paper but not majors in maths, I highly recommend you to learn numerical optimization before get hands on it, trust me, this isn't a trivial job, I still remember how frustrate I'm when the first time I tried to read the paper, it took me a few months to teach myself a lot of maths.
I also wrote a branch of articles to describe every specify stage of my research, but ............. it's written in Chinese, I don't have time to translate them into English yet, so if you're interesting, make the Google translator be with you. Sorry :)
