Paper Abstract

Computer animation can be implemented using parametric polygonal models. A parametric model consists of a set of polygons, a set of functions and a set of parameters. The position of each polygon vertex is determined as a function of one or more of the para-meters. With parametric models, animation is reduced to specifying the parameter values for each frame of a sequence. Two models are used to illustrate this concept.
