Abstract: The PGPGrid project aims to apply real time 3D vision technology to animation production. The image capture process is highly parallel but has some unusual features, such as rapid spawning of processes in real time, and a dynamic inter-process network topology. We describe the parallel performance of the scanner application, the development of a Java API based on Milner's pi-calculus and its integration with the Grid to utilise distributed resources in a dynamic manner. We describe the transfer of captured 3D data to the animation of cartoon characters, and the results of temporal noise reduction in the modelling process.
