  • Flexible and Accurate Transparent - Object Matting and Compositing Using Refractive Vector Field 

    Duan, Qi; Zheng, Jianmin; Cai, Jianfei (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    In digital image editing, environment matting and compositing are fundamental and interesting operations that can capture and simulate the refraction and reflection effects of light from an environment. The state‐of‐the‐art ...
  • Extending Backward Polygon Beam Tracing to Glossy Scattering Surfaces 

    Duvenhage, B.; Bouatouch, K.; Kourie, D. G. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Backward polygon beam tracing methods, that is beam tracing from the light source (L), are well suited to gather path coherency from specular (S) scattering surfaces. These methods are useful for modelling and efficiently ...
  • Diffusion‐Based Snow Cover Generation 

    Festenberg, Niels v.; Gumhold, Stefan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    We present a method to generate snow covers on complex scene geometries. Both volumetric snow shapes and photorealistic texturing are computed. We formulate snow accumulation as a diffusive distribution process on a ground ...
  • A Survey of Image Statistics Relevant to Computer Graphics 

    Pouli, Tania; Cunningham, Douglas W.; Reinhard, Erik (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    The statistics of natural images have attracted the attention of researchers in a variety of fields and have been used as a means to better understand the human visual system and its processes. A number of algorithms in ...
  • The State of the Art in Topology‐Based Visualization of Unsteady Flow 

    Pobitzer, Armin; Peikert, Ronald; Fuchs, Raphael; Schindler, Benjamin; Kuhn, Alexander; Theisel, Holger; Matković, Krešimir; Hauser, Helwig (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Vector fields are a common concept for the representation of many different kinds of flow phenomena in science and engineering. Methods based on vector field topology are known for their convenience for visualizing and ...
  • Fast Mean‐Curvature Flow via Finite‐Elements Tracking 

    Chuang, Ming; Kazhdan, Michael (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    In this paper, we present a novel approach for efficiently evolving meshes using mean‐curvature flow. We use a finite‐elements hierarchy that supports an efficient multigrid solver for performing the semi‐implicit ...
  • Visual Analysis of Large Graphs: State-of-the-Art and Future Research Challenges 

    Landesberger, T. von; Kuijper, A.; Schreck, T.; Kohlhammer, J.; Wijk, J.J. van; Fekete, J.‐D.; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    The analysis of large graphs plays a prominent role in various fields of research and is relevant in many important application areas. Effective visual analysis of graphs requires appropriate visual presentations in ...
  • A Survey on Shape Correspondence 

    Kaick, Oliver van; Zhang, Hao; Hamarneh, Ghassan; Cohen‐Or, Daniel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    We review methods designed to compute correspondences between geometric shapes represented by triangle meshes, contours or point sets. This survey is motivated in part by recent developments in space–time registration, ...
  • Improved Model‐ and View‐Dependent Pruning of Large Botanical Scenes 

    Neubert, B.; Pirk, S.; Deussen, O.; Dachsbacher, C. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    We present an optimized pruning algorithm that allows for considerable geometry reduction in large botanical scenes while maintaining high and coherent rendering quality. We improve upon previous techniques by applying ...
  • Exploring Non‐Linear Relationship of Blendshape Facial Animation 

    Liu, Xuecheng; Xia, Shihong; Fan, Yiwen; Wang, Zhaoqi (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Human face is a complex biomechanical system and non‐linearity is a remarkable feature of facial expressions. However, in blendshape animation, facial expression space is linearized by regarding linear relationship between ...
  • Efficient Depth‐of‐Field Rendering with Adaptive Sampling and Multiscale Reconstruction 

    Chen, Jiating; Wang, Bin; Wang, Yuxiang; Overbeck, Ryan S.; Yong, Jun‐Hai; Wang, Wenping (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2011)
    Depth‐of‐field is one of the most crucial rendering effects for synthesizing photorealistic images. Unfortunately, this effect is also extremely costly. It can take hundreds to thousands of samples to achieve noise‐free ...
