We have developed a technology that enables the creation of TV-program-like CG animationgenerated automatically from text-based script. We call this technology "T2V (Text-To-Vision)" and havedeveloped a PC application that we call the "T2V Player." The application allows users to create animationsinstantly by simply typing in text in a customary fashion as when writing on a word processor. The T2V Playeremploys a unique framework with a capability to accommodate any text processing module to realize any type oftext-to-animation conversion. The T2V Player is not only an animation tool for writers creating animations fromtheir texts, but also an application of various text-to-vision services such as automatic animation generationform Web sites and other text sources. This paper describes the concept of T2V and the technical specifications ofthe T2V Player and its benefits.
