Non-Linear Animation for Production
Thursday,16 August
8:30 - 10:15 am
Petree Hall C

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.
