TR#512: Luxomatic: Computer Vision for Puppeteering
Andrew D. Wilson
In this tech note we describe the Luxomatic performance
animation system, a computer vision system that tracks a puppeteer's hand
to map hand position and shape to an animated graphical model. An
eigenvector decomposition of typical hand images are used to both track the
hand and extract two-dimensional pose information in real time.
Luxomatic was constructed as a class project in 1997.
