Selected topics and papers from the first international workshop on computer animation, held in Geneva in 1989, provide a comprehensive overview of the problems encountered in the rising field of computer animation. To foster interactive links between researchers, end-users, and artists, roundtables and discussions have been included as well as presentations of concepts and research themes such as keyframe to task-level animation, artificial intelligence, natural language and simulation for human animation, choreography, anthropometry for animated human figures, facial animation and expressions, the use of dynamic simulation, motion control and blur, and data-base oriented animation design.
