Abstract—Previsualization, also known as previs in the digital content industry, is becoming increasingly important. Previsualization in animation, movies and visual effects (VFX) can enhance ideas and creative story production. Thus, unnecessary expenses can be minimized while output quality can be improved. It is crucial to produce proxy modeling that can implement animation quickly during the previsualization production stage. The process is often ignored because additional procedures are needed, and it takes a relatively long time for an unskilled person to produce proxy modeling. Therefore, it is imperative to develop a proxy plug-in tool to simplify the motion process using an easy method. A new method was developed for creating a bounding box by attaching it to each joint, differentiating it from the existing high-poly to low-poly working process. This unique proxy plug-in development method allows us to proceed with the motion process in fewer steps, with better operation, steady speed performance, and a precise shape to work efficiently in previsualization. Using the proxy plug-in tool to perform the motion may be a solution for creating easy access to previsualization and story production.
