## Description

### Overview

The computer animation deals with the representation and rendering of moving three-dimensional objects in a computer; therefore it is sometimes called 4D computer graphics. Besides the treatment of some basic topics, the emphasis of the lecture computer animation lies on the representation of virtual people (avatars and animated agents).

### Topics include:

• Representation of Movements of Rigid Bodies
• Forward and Inverse Kinematics
• Animation of Faces
• Motion Capture Systems
• Searching in Motion Data
• Editing of Motion Data
• Cognitive Modeling Hierarchy
