Abstract

In this concept we present tools for faster designing of reconfigurable function oriented animation systems. A set of basic animation structures and a set of basic animation techniques are defined. An object-oriented hierarchy can be built on the basis of the relationship between basic animation structures and animation techniques. We propose a corresponding class hierarchy for animation design. The classes of our hierarchy are incrementally developed through inheritance and dynamic binding. Some programming aspects concerning efficient implementation of basic animation structures through container classes are discussed.
