Now accepting suggestions for a new sigline
that's pretty cool by theantix (4.00 / 3) #2 Sat Mar 18, 2006 at 06:06:37 PM EST
not joking either, it's pretty cool -- good work.


Mostly just a demo for now. by NoMoreNicksLeft (2.00 / 0) #3 Sat Mar 18, 2006 at 06:11:53 PM EST
I'm not happy with it... I'm moving a single control point of the spline linearly. In inkscape, with me manually dragging it, I get the best shape if I drag it in a shallow curve, but I'll be damned if I know how to do the math for it. And some of the other features I've tried to do ended up even worse... this was one of the few where moving a single control point suffices.

I think I have a long road ahead on this one.

rather than having a slider outside the picture, it ought to be possible to drag the eyelid directly. This will simplify things when you get up to the 60 parameters.

For that one particular action unit. by NoMoreNicksLeft (2.00 / 0) #5 Sun Mar 19, 2006 at 06:42:31 AM EST
Others talk about multiple visual signs. I mean, when I have 20 hotspots out on the cheek, on the forehead, how will you find the one you want to drag?

Besides, a good 70% of expressions seem to me to be symetric, and a direct drag implies only one side of the face, external sliders are the way to go, I'm thinking.

It's going to be a nasty-assed UI no matter what I do though. It's pushing the limits of what is manually enterable, I think.

mark the drag points by komet (2.00 / 0) #6 Sun Mar 19, 2006 at 07:09:52 AM EST
with little circles or something. At the very least, if you insist on sliders, make hovering over a slider highlight the corresponding area on the face and vice versa.
