This paper presents a new representation of skeleton sequences for 3D action recognition. Existing methods based on hand-crafted features or recurrent neural networks cannot adequately capture the complex spatial structures and the long-term temporal dynamics of the skeleton sequences, which are very important to recognize the actions. In this paper, we propose to transform each channel of the 3D coordinates of a skeleton sequence into a clip. Each frame of the generated clip represents the temporal information of the entire skeleton sequence and one particular spatial relationship between the skeleton joints. The entire clip incorporates multiple frames with different spatial relationships,..
