A MPEG-4 virtual human animation engine for interactive web based applications

This paper presents a novel, MPEG-4 compliant animation engine (body player). It has been designed to synthesize virtual human full-body animations in interactive multimedia applications for the web. We believe that a full-body player can provide a more expressive and interesting interface than the use of animated faces only (talking heads). This is one of the first implementations of a MPEG-4 animation engine with deformable models (it uses the MPEG-4 Body Definition Parameters and Deformation Tables). Several potential applications are overviewed. This software tool was developed in the framework of the IST-INTERFACE European project
