B.J.H. van Basten, A. Egges and R. Geraerts Combining path planners and motion graphs Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds 22
Combining path planning and motion graphs introduces several problems. We will identify two problems and propose possible solutions. The first problem is selecting an appropriate distance metric for locomotion synthesis. We have evaluated three common distance metrics and propose a set of guidelines. The second problem is that there is no single point on the body that can follow a generated path without causing unnatural artifacts. We will show that our solution, which uses path abstractions, generates significantly better animations.
