I am very impressed! It is easy to see you are on your way to a well-deserved wonderful future.

An absolutely great read, thank you for this. Really lays a foundation on how to go about the learning process.

Hi Matthew and Mr VFX, I’m currently researching this topic of decomposing images into shading and reflectance layers. I would love to learn about what you are trying to use this for to learn more about applications for this technology.

Mode-Adaptive Neural Networks for Quadruped Motion Control
16 May, 2018

Have a look at an amazing study on real-time quadruped motion synthesis which will be presented at this year’s SIGGRAPH. The paper proposes a novel method called Mode-Adaptive Neural Networks. The thing is that this model could be really useful for games, films, and other projects that require top-notch animation. Let’s study the details. 

We present a novel method for real-time quadruped motion synthesis called Mode-Adaptive Neural Networks. Our system is trained in an end-to-end fashion on unstructured motion capture data, without requiring labels for the phase or locomotion gaits. The system can be used for creating natural animations in games and films, and is the first of such systematic approaches whose quality could be of practical use. It is implemented in the Unity 3D engine and TensorFlow, and published under the ACM Transactions on Graphics / SIGGRAPH 2018.
