Automatic Animation Skeleton Construction Using Repulsive Force Field
A method is proposed in this paper to automatically generate the animation skeleton of a model such that the model can be manipulated according to the skeleton. With our method, users can construct the skeleton in a short time, and bring a static model both dynamic and alive. The primary steps of our method are finding skeleton joints, connecting the joints to form an animation skeleton, and binding skin vertices to the skeleton. Initially, a repulsive force field is constructed inside a given model, and a set of points with local minimal force magnitude are found based on the force field. Then, a modified thinning algorithm is applied to generate an initial skeleton, which is further refined to become the final result. When the skeleton construction completes, skin vertices are anchored to the skeleton joints according to the distances between the vertices and joints. In order to build the repulsive force field, hundreds of rays are shot radially from positions inside the mode...
