  Animation and Modelling
  We have two major programmes in this area, one in 2D and one in 3D.
  • Classical 2D drawn animation
    Our long-term project studies computer support for 2D animation - the classical form used by Disney, Warner, Hallas and Batchelor etc. With our international collaborators we have achieved major progress in image representation, in "highly drawn" visual styles and in productivity. These are a world-beating results, even compared to full professional studios.

    Our contrubitions include animation-related issues, notably compositing and image representation. These have applications in film generally, including special effects, and more broadly in image manipulation.

  • Facial animation and modelling in 3D
    We also study PDE surfaces, to allow us to mode both the geometry and animation of 3D faces in a single representation.
