In this paper, we introduce an interactive approach to generate physically based shape interpolation between poses. We extend linear modal analysis to offer an efficient and robust numerical technique to generate physically-plausible dynamics even for very large deformation. Our method also provides a rich set of intuitive editing tools with real-time feedback, including control over vibration frequencies, amplitudes, and damping of the resulting interpolation sequence. We demonstrate the versatility of our approach through a series of complex dynamic shape interpolations.
