Computer Animation '90, the second one foreign workshop on machine animation, was once held in Geneva, Switzerland, on April 25-27, 1990. This e-book includes invited papers and a variety of study papers submitted to this workshop. The contributions handle unique learn in addition to effects completed in a few fields of computing device animation together with medical visualization, human animation, behavioral animation, and movement control.

3 Classification of Movements Several authors are investigating the expressiveness of natural language for the specification of human movement. For example, the classification of English verbs of motion proposed in Miller (1972) has been used in Tsotsos, Mylopoulos, Covvey, and Zucker (1980) to realize a motion analysis system. More recently, in the attempt to represent the dynamic qualities of human movement for the purposes of animation, the so called "Effort-Shape" analysis has been proposed (Badler 1986).
