Time Wheel

Conception and prototypical development of an animation tool.

Time Wheel


The interactions for recurring loop animations in animation software are not intuitive. With this project, a new tool for loop animations should be developed as an university project in 2015.


The animation tool Time Wheel is designed to introduce a new kind of interaction for loop animations. Each walk cycle within a Looped animation should be associated with a single time wheel. Unlike ordinary editing on a time beam, the animator can now define keyframes and manipulations cyclically, and has less difficulty editing transitions.
