The virtual metamorphosis system lets people change their forms into any other form in a virtual scene. To realize these changes, a computer vision system estimates facial expressions and body postures and reproduces them in a computer graphics avatar in real time. We introduce three systems in order of their development: the Virtual Kabuki system, Networked Theater, and `Shall We Dance?'
