Generating CG Movies Based on a Cognitive Model of Shot Transition

  • Conference paper
Knowledge-Based Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems (KES 2005)


This paper proposes a CG movie creation support system which automatically generates appropriate shot transitions to make the movies more comprehensible. First, we propose a shot transition model, and then, to examine the validity of the proposed model, we analyze shot transitions in TV programs. Finally, based on the data analysis, a CG contents creation system will be implemented.
