pp: 32-44
<p>A classification of models for animating synthetic actors is proposed. The classification depends on the motion control method used (geometric, physical, or behavioral) and the type of actor interaction (single actor, actor-actor, actor-environment, and animator-actor). These interactions and models give rise to a classification array with four rows and three columns. Each case represents existing and potential approaches to animation control. The characteristics of each motion control method and interaction type are examined.</p>
