ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—We present a new method for smoothly interpolating orientation matrices. It is based upon quaternions and a particular construction of ν-spline curves. The new method has tension parameters and variable knot (time) spacing which both prove to be effective in designing and controlling key frame animations.</p>
INDEX TERMS
Animation, key frame, inbetweening, quaternion, splines.
