Paper Abstract

The methodologies and tools used recently in animation are presented and their most significant problems are recognized. It includes creating of libraries of realistic 3D objects and describing the models of animation in 3D space. As a solution optical methods using structured light are proposed for gathering information about shape of 3D objects. The fringe projection system is applied for determination of absolute co- ordinate of 3D objects in respect to their global shape and local texture. Additionally the measurements at sequential stages of the object movements are performed. This information is the base to calculate the trajectories of points' movement, and latter to predict the model of animation. The concept described above is experimentally tested on simple 3D objects. The further works required to apply the methodology presented for description of complex, realistic objects are discussed.
