Abstract

Motion style transfer is a primary problem in computer animation, allowing us to convert the motion of an actor to that of another one. Myriads approaches have been developed to perform this task, however, the majority of them are data-driven, which require a large dataset and a time-consuming period for training a model in order to achieve good results. In contrast, we propose a novel method applied successfully for this task in a small dataset. This exploits Sparse PCA to decompose original motions into smaller components which are learned with particular constraints. The synthesized results are highly precise and smooth motions with its emotion as shown in our experiments.
