Fast surface modelling using a 6th Order PDE

In this paper, we present a new method to improve the efficiency of physics-based surface modeling which creates and manipulates surfaces through physics-based curve deformations. The proposed physics-based mathematical model of curve deformations consists of a vector-valued fourth order ordinary differential equation and boundary constraints. An efficient finite difference solution […]

Efficient sketch-based creation of detailed character models through data-driven mesh deformations

Creation of detailed character models is a very challenging task in animation production. Sketch-based character model creation from a 3D template provides a promising solution. However, how to quickly find correct correspondences between user’s drawn sketches and the 3D template model, how to efficiently deform the 3D template model to […]
