This recent and currently on-going work is done in collaboration with researchers from INRIA (France) and Udine (Italy). This work presents a now patented virtual camera editing assistant which proposes alternative camera angles for filming movies based on previously recorded shots so that the computed suggestions reflect continuity and composition and editing style tendencies of its users. The system is now available as a plugin to Autodesk’s MotionBuilder.
