Pose Animator – Bring Your SVG Files to Life Via Webcam
by Taylor Slattery | August 2, 2020
People are learning to do some pretty creative things with their cameras. Snapchat first introduced the world at large to filters a while back, but recently things have been taken to a new level. Thanks to software like Spark AR Studio, everyone is making filters. It’s no longer just about touching up your pictures before uploading them to Instagram. If you want, you can give yourself an entirely new face. People are finding fresh and creative ways to utilize motion-tracking to create immersive, fun, and artistic expressions.
Recently, I learned of something in a similar vein, called Pose Animator. The project was created by Shan Huang, or Yemount as she’s known on GitHub. Although Pose Animator is not an official Google product, Shan does work as a Creative Technologist at Google. Similar to the previously mentioned Instagram filters, Pose Animator utilizes your camera as a source of data. It runs in a browser though, and at the moment, only Chrome and iOS Safari are supported. However, this does mean that Chrome on Android is supported as well, so if you’re on your phone, you can still give it a try.
