Labeling Guidelines

To ensure that your labels are effective and highly valuable, we've established some guidelines:
  •  Keep your descriptions concise (try to keep it to 50 words max) while maintaining informativeness.
  •  Each label should encompass at least two aspects (action type and style).
  •  For lengthier animations, prioritize entity level descriptions, noting durations where necessary.
  •  Utilize inclusive language effectively to describe motion.

Best Description: A person stands up quickly with hunched shoulders and moves 10 feet forward, walks clockwise in an angry manner, and then reaches out with their left arm to grab the left arm of a chair, lowering themselves heavily into the seat, resting their chin in the palm of their left hand which is now resting on the arm of the chair.

Good Description: A person stands up, walks clockwise, and sits down.

Bad Description: A man walks.

Consider the following when labeling:
  • Action type: e.g. squat, kick, run
  • Direction: e.g. forward, clockwise, left, right
  • Body parts: e.g. arms, hip, left hand, right arm
  • Velocity: e.g. fast, sprint
  • Trajectory: e.g. clockwise circle/square, Z-shape
  • Relative position: e.g. right hand side, over head
  • Emotion: e.g. angry, joyful, spiritless
  • Style: e.g. effortless, energetic, fluid, mechanical, frantic
