Wenhui Guo:
A Two-View Approach to Creating Computer Animation

In this paper, we report about the design and implementation of a new interactive animation system. The system is based on the idea that all objects occurring in animation sequences should have two views:the structural view and the shape view. Using our system, the animator can create the two views simultaneously without programming and can manipulate objects by sending messages. Thus, the system is based on an interactive, object-oriented data model implemented on the Macintosh.
