Abstract

This paper presents methods based on the open standard X3D to rapidly describe life-like characters and other scene elements in the context of storyboarding and pre-visualization. Current frameworks that employ virtual agents often rely on non-standardized pipelines and lack functionality to describe lighting, camera staging or character behavior in a descriptive and simple manner. Even though demand for such a system is high, ranging from edutainment to pre-visualization in the movie industry, few such systems exist. Thereto, we present the ANSWER framework, which provides a set of interconnected components that aid a film director in the process of film production from the planning stage to post-production. Rich and intuitive user interfaces are used for scene authoring and the underlying knowledge model is populated using semantic web technologies over which reasoning is applied. This transforms the user input into animated pre-visualizations that enable a director to experience and understand certain film making decisions before production begins. In this context we also propose some extensions to the current X3D standard for describing cinematic contents.
