Non-Linear Animation for Production
8:30 - 10:15 am

Production studios, 3D animators, and vendors of many popular
computer graphics packages, are increasingly using the term
"non-linear animation" (NLA), which usually describes
a way of working with various types of motion data at a higher
level where animation sources are abstracted to transportable
snippets. Nonlinear tools can be useful in many areas of production,
such as previsualization, animation creation, motion editing,
retargeting and reuse, choreography, and actor direction.
This panel discusses practical and speculative uses of NLA
techniques in a production environment.
