Description

We present sketch based interactive animation system for kids, tohelp them animate multiple character with path following techniqueusing waveform as a path, so they can enjoy animating their handdrawing with less and simple operation. The traditional cartoonanimation requires drawing each frame by hand. Computer basedanimation can generate interpolated frames, however the user shouldset the start and the end of the poses on the key-frames. Both waystake time and effort and not suitable for kids. Instead of theseapproaches, there are several animation systems designed mainly fornovice users, which simply move and rotate a 2D image. Although ananimation single character can be created easily, the user stillhas to set a key-frame for each character when moving multiplecharacters, and if not the characters will have the same time ofappearance and movement. Our goal is to design an animation system,especially for kids, which solves these problems; kids can controlmultiple characters to have different movement without thecompleteness of individually operating ones with kid friendly useroperations. The system’s window is divided in two canvases besideeach other, one for drawing the character, the other one for makingthe animation. The process starts by making the kids draw anycharacter they want in the drawing window, then press on the addbutton to add the characters on the path to start following it.Using sound waveform captured from microphone as a path, and theabsence of the key frame will reduce the operations of making theanimation, so the kids were able to finish animating their handdrawing in tens of seconds.

small animator is an application use two techniques, pathfollowingand crowd simulation, to allow the kids to improve theirlanguageand communication skills by making short stories and shareit withfriends and adults.path following will translate, rotate andchange2D image speed automatically, while crowd simulation willwork onapplying the animation on multiple character, without addingframeson the time line.
