This paper treats intuitive interfaces for motion generation and motion search. These are research results on the interactive animation system achieved by the research group of the authors as the part of a research project "Intuitive Human Interface for Organizing and Accessing Intellectual Assets". For CG animation creation, the motion design of CG characters as well as the shape design is very laborious work. For the motion design, the authors have already proposed a component based motion editing environment, a real-time motion generation system using puppet/marionette metaphors and a motion database management system. These allow the user to create motions interactively, intuitively and make it easy to distribute and re-edit motions. In this paper, the authors introduce these motion generation and motion search systems.
