Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2006108990A2] The invention relates to a method for animating a scene graph (M), characterized by comprising the following steps: creating (e1) an animation graph instance (G) comprising animation modules (MA1,..., MA10) and composition modules (MC1,..., MC4) organized in an arborescent manner, the animation modules being lower leaves of the trees of the graph and the composition modules enabling the composition of the results of their child modules, said child modules being any of the animation or composition modules; executing (e3) the animation while successively executing the animation and composition modules of the graph in such a manner that the execution of a composition module uses the results of the executions of its child modules.
