Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionProfessional


The OCC (Ortony, Clore, & Collins, 1988) model has established itself as the standard model for emotion synthesis. A large number of studies employed the OCC model to generate emotions for their embodied characters. Many developers of such characters believe that the OCC model will be all they ever need to equip their character with emotions. This paper points out what the OCC model is able to do for an embodied emotional character and what it does not. Missing features include a history function, a personality designer and the interaction of the emotional categories.
