  • Publication number: 20220020199
    Abstract: Motion retargeting with kinematic constraints is implemented in a digital medium environment. Generally, the described techniques provide for retargeting motion data from a source motion sequence to a target visual object. Accordingly, the described techniques position a target visual object in a defined visual environment to identify kinematic constraints of the target object relative to the visual environment. Further, the described techniques utilize an iterative optimization process that fine tunes the conformance of retargeted motion of a target object to the identified kinematic constraints.

  • Patent number: 11224816
    Abstract: An information processing device that progresses a game using a game content associated with a player. In response to receiving an obtaining request, the device selects a subset of game contents, where a portion of the game contents has a same identification information and each of the portion of the game contents has a different validity period. The device obtains a validity period associated with each of the selected game contents. When a first game content associated with the player has the same identification information as a second game content, the device updates, for each game content, a validity period of the first game content based on the validity period of the second game content in the subset of game contents. The device then restricts use of the first game content in the game when the validity period of the first game content lapses.

  • Patent number: 11004765
    Abstract: A semiconductor device may include a semiconductor substrate, an insulator film covering a part of an upper surface of the substrate, and a gate electrode opposing the upper surface via the insulator film. In the semiconductor substrate, a drift layer extending through a body layer to the upper surface opposes the gate electrode via the insulator film. The insulator film extends from the upper surface of the semiconductor substrate to an upper surface of the gate electrode by passing between the gate electrode and an upper electrode, and defines an opening at the upper surface of the gate electrode. A side surface of the opening of the insulator film is entirely located outside a volume space consisting of all straight lines that passes through the opposing surface of the drift layer at angle of 45 degrees to the opposing surface.

  • Patent number: 10977549
    Abstract: In implementations of object animation using generative neural networks, one or more computing devices of a system implement an animation system for reproducing animation of an object in a digital video. A mesh of the object is obtained from a first frame of the digital video and a second frame of the digital video having the object is selected. Features of the object from the second frame are mapped to vertices of the mesh, and the mesh is warped based on the mapping. The warped mesh is rendered as an image by a neural renderer and compared to the object from the second frame to train a neural network. The rendered image is then refined by a generator of a generative adversarial network which includes a discriminator. The discriminator trains the generator to reproduce the object from the second frame as the refined image.

  • Publication number: 20210074050
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, non-transitory computer-readable media, and methods for intelligently blending inverse kinematic (IK) solutions to more naturally depict joint positioning and/or movement of digital animated characters. In particular, in one or more embodiments, the character animation system can blend two IK solutions for an elbow joint based on a shoulder angle. For example, the character animation system can utilize a blending region to dynamically blend IK solutions as the shoulder angle moves through the blending region, thereby smoothly modifying bend direction and elbow position of the animated character arm. Based on the modified elbow position relative to a wrist position and a shoulder position, the animated character system can simulate more accurate, natural arm movements while reducing time and interactions needed to generate realistic animation sequences.
