Abstract: Skeletal motion transition is of crucial importance to the animation creation. In this paper, we propose a hybrid deep learning framework that allows for efficient human motion transition. First, we integrate a convolutional restricted Boltzmann machine with deep belief network to extract the spatio-temporal features of each motion style, featuring on appropriate detection of transition points. Then, a quadruples-like data structure is exploited for motion graph building, motion splitting and indexing. Accordingly, the similar frames fulfilling the transition segments can be efficiently retrieved. Meanwhile, the transition length is reasonably computed according to the average speed of the motion joints. As a result, different kinds of diverse motions can be well transited with satisfactory performance. The experimental results show that the proposed transition approach brings substantial improvements over the state-of-the-art methods.
