Abstract : Automated film editing involves the generation of the position, orientation, motion and selection of virtual cameras in interactive 3D graphics applications. There is a pressing demand for techniques to assist and automate the control of virtual cameras in the computer games industry where the rapid development of personal computers and high performance consoles has led to substantial improvements in the visual fidelity of games. The goal of this survey is to characterize the spectrum of applications that require automated film editing, present a summary of state-of-the-art models and techniques, and identify both promising avenues and hot topics for future research.
