Abstract: In this paper, a stylistic human motion editing system is presented. This system concentrates on extracting and editing motion styles from motion pairs. A new low-dimensional motion model is introduced into this system. In this model, motion style is defined quantitatively as a low-dimensional subspace of motion data and can be obtained easily from a motion pair. This system provides several style editing tools and accessorial modules based on the proposed motion model. Using these tools and modules, animators can not only translate the style of the original motions but also transfer and add styles between two motions.

Keywords: motion styles; character animation; motion capture; human motion editing; motion modelling; motion simulation.
