    • Viewpoint Selection for Liquid Animations 

      Suzuki, Chihiro; Kanai, Takashi (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      We propose a viewpoint selection method for time-varying liquid shapes in order to select the best viewpoint for liquid animations. First, viewpoint evaluation is performed by a combination of three evaluation terms; ...
    • Untangling Layered Garments: An Implicit Approach 

      Buffet, Thomas; Rohmer, Damien; Cani, Marie-Paule (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      The efficient animation of layers of garments is a challenging task, as it requires handling collisions and contacts between multiple thin surfaces, which may be difficult to untangle once inter-penetrations have occurred. ...

    • Local Models for Data Driven Inverse Kinematics of Soft Robots 

      Holsten, Fredrik; Darkner, Sune; Engell-Nørregård, Morten P.; Erleben, Kenny (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      Soft robots are attractive because they have the potential of being safer, faster and cheaper than traditional rigid robots. If we can predict the shape of a soft robot for a given set of control parameters, then we can ...
    • Dilated Temporal Fully-Convolutional Network for Semantic Segmentation of Motion Capture Data 

      Noshaba, Cheema; Hosseini, Somayeh; Sprenger, Janis; Herrmann, Erik; Du, Han; Fischer, Klaus; Slusallek, Philipp (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      Semantic segmentation of motion capture sequences plays a key part in many data-driven motion synthesis frameworks. It is a preprocessing step in which long recordings of motion capture sequences are partitioned into smaller ...
    • Latent Motion Manifold with Sequential Auto-Encoders 

      Jang, Deok-Kyeong; Lee, Sung-Hee (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      We propose the sequential autoencoders for constructing latent motion manifold. Sequential autoencoders minimize the difference between the ground truth motion space distribution and reconstructed motion space distribution ...
    • Capturing Floor Exercise from Multiple Panning-Zooming Cameras 

      Kobayashi, D.; Yamamoto, Masanobu (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      By panning and zooming camera, a system of the multiple cameras can obtain wider range of common field of views. It means that an image based motion capture system can measure bodies in motion of wider range. To do so, a ...
    • Volumetric Muscle Controller 

      Lee, Seunghwan; Mitchell, Nathan; Aanjaneya, Mridul; Sifakis, Eftychios; Lee, Jehee (ACM, 2017)
      We describe a controller with a fully integrated musculoskeletal model actuated by more than a hundred muscles. Inspired by a QP-based control algorithm, we improved the algorithm to control the volumetric muscles directly. ...
    • Understanding Spatial Perception and Visual Modes in the Review of Architectural Designs 

      Usman, Muhammad; Haworth, Brandon; Berseth, Glen; Kapadia, Mubbasir; Faloutsos, Petros (ACM, 2017)
      We investigate how a person's perception of space in di erent visual modes relates to common computational spatial measures for environment designs. The three spatial measures, grounded in Space-Syntax analysis, are used ...
    • Regression-Based Locating Landmark on Dynamic Humans 

      Jang, Deok-Kyeong; Lee, Sung-Hee (ACM, 2017)
      We present a novel framework that consists of two-level regressors for finding correlations between human shapes and landmark positions in both body part and holistic scales. To this end, we first develop pose invariant ...
    • The Stretch-Engine: A Method for Adjusting the Exaggeration of Bipedal Characters Through Squash and Stretch 

      Ibrahim, Zaid H. (ACM, 2017)
      This paper describes a new method to control changes in a character's form during exaggeration, through squash and stretch (SS). The Stretch-Engine is the result of this method, designed to be integrated into an existing ...
    • Sketch-Based 3D Hair Posing by Contour Drawings 

      Seki, Shogo; Igarashi, Takeo (ACM, 2017)
      We propose a sketch-based method for posing a three-dimensional (3D) hair model that enables artists to create attractive hairstyles more easily and intuitively. The system takes partial contour drawings of a preferred ...
    • Position-Based Multi-Agent Dynamics for Real-Time Crowd Simulation 

      Weiss, Tomer; Litteneker, Alan; Jiang, Chenfanfu; Terzopoulos, Demetri (ACM, 2017)
      Exploiting the e ciency and stability of Position-Based Dynamics (PBD), we introduce a novel crowd simulation method that runs at interactive rates for hundreds of thousands of agents. Our method enables the detailed ...
    • Online Compression of Rigid Body Simulations using Physics-Inspired Interpolation 

      Jeruzalski, Timothy; Fiume, Eugene; Jacobson, Alec; Levin, David I.W. (ACM, 2017)
