Abstract: The Real world, it takes considerable effort and extensive practice for a person who is poor at controlling a ball to become good at it. Moreover, manually synthesizing character animation for controlling a ball is arduous work, because the motion of the character must be synchronized with the ball, which moves according to the laws of physics. Therefore, this study proposes a novel method that generates the movement of a ball from motion capture data, and allows anyone to immediately become good at controlling a ball in the virtual world. Because it is difficult for a novice to control a ball, this study does not use an actual ball. Instead, motion that mimics control of a ball is captured and used. Frames and positions in which a character could interact with a ball are identified by analyzing the motion capture data, and then the movement of the ball is generated according to rules. Moreover, this study proposes a convenient method for controlling a character that controls a ball. Finally, we demonstrate the usefulness of our method through soccer ball juggling and basketball dribbling.
