Hi Steve and Oscar -
I do not know about the mathematical side to this, but I do know that there are animated Avatars being animated using the Expressive View of SignWriting…perhaps they are all in the development stage, but nonetheless the projects are making headway. One of them is in Tunisia and another project in South Africa…

Mainly I would need to document the differences between Receptive and Expressive Viewpoints really well, before such conversion programs should be written...

Val ;-)
