Multiresolution motion analysis has gained considerable research interest as a unified framework to facilitate a variety of motion editing tasks. Within this framework, motion data are represented as a collection of coefficients that form a coarse-to-fine hierarchy. The coefficients at the coarsest level describe the global pattern of a motion signal, while those at fine levels provide details at successively finer resolutions. Due to the inherent nonlinearity of the orientation space, the challenge is to generalize multiresolution representations for motion data that contain orientations as well as positions. Our goal is to develop a multiresolution analysis method that guarantees coordinate-invariance without singularity. To do so, we employ two novel ideas: hierarchical displacement mapping and motion filtering. Hierarchical displacement mapping provides an elegant formulation to describe positions and orientations in a coherent manner. Motion filtering enables us to separate motion details level-by-level to build a multiresolution representation in a coordinate-invariant way. Our representation facilitates multiresolution motion editing through level-wise coefficient manipulation that uniformly addresses issues raised by motion modification, blending, and stitching.
