16. 7 In-betweening Using Moving Point Constraints As dIscussed, In-betweemng often provIdes bad results, because of the use oflInear InterpolatIOn. Even If a non-lInear law IS used, thIS IS a non-lInear varIatIon In tune only and not In space. In fact It IS not sufficIent to specIfy the speed of InterpolatIOn, It IS also desIrable to speCIfy a non-lInear path Reeves [1981] has proposed a method of In-betweemng USIng mOVIng POInt constraInts. ThIS method IS meant to allow the specIfIcatIon of multIple paths and speeds of InterpolatIOn and to reduce motIon dIscontInUItIes at key frames The prIncIple of the techmque IS to assocIate a curve varyIng In space and tIme WIth some POInts ofthe ammated object.
