プロジェクト概要

2D freehand animation enables viewers to intuitively experience artistry and feeling. Among these techniques, GIF animation (e.g., LINE’s stamp and Twitter icon) has attracted worldwide attention in social networks. To present a worldview using 2D freehand animation, anime-like techniques such as flip books and motion comics are employed. However, the creation of 2D freehand animations has always been a time-consuming and skill-demanding process. Software such as Adobe Photoshop provides some assistance by creating animations from a small number of key frames and generating in-between frames automatically. However, creating the numerous key frames of animation, such as those in a flip book, requires significant skill and time. Therefore, our project develops a sketching interface that provides enhanced frame interpolation capability for freehand drawing animation (i.e., graffiti animation). With our interface, the user can generate freehand animations easily and quickly.
