Title: VIDEO IMAGE GENERATING DEVICE, CHARACTER APPEARANCE CHANGING METHOD, INFORMATION RECORDING MEDIUM, AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
An object memory unit (220) stores object information including a character of a protagonist who wears camouflage clothes. Concretely, the object memory unit (220) stores a standard texture (222) for indicating a standard camouflage pattern, an additional texture (223) for indicating replaceable camouflage pattern, and a material feeling pattern (224) for determining the feel of a material. When the protagonist character stops, a background specifying unit (232) refers to a position memory unit (240) and specifies an object that becomes a background of the protagonist character. Further, a clothes changing unit (233) appropriately selects a combination of the additional texture (223) and the material feeling parameter (224) in compliance with the specified object texture, or the like, and also changes the appearance of the protagonist character camouflage clothes.
