Computer Facial Animation
  • Computer facial animation is an area of computer
    graphics that encapsulates various techniques and
    methods for generating and animating images of a

    humanoid, a fantasy character or creature, etc.

    disapproval or concentration with the corners of
    the mouth turned down.

    verbal and non-verbal communication and advances
    in computer graphics software and hardware have
    caused considerable scientific, technological,
    and creative interests in computer facial
    animation.

    can be separated into two main areas

    belong to the first term, while skeletal
    animation and morph targets animation belongs to
    the second.
