      High dynamic range (HDR) imagery permits the manipulation of real‐world data distinct from the limitations of the traditional, low dynamic range (LDR), content. The process of retargeting HDR content to traditional LDR ...
    • An Approximate Parallel Vectors Operator for Multiple Vector Fields 

      Gerrits, Tim; Rössl, Christian; Theisel, Holger (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      The Parallel Vectors (PV) Operator extracts the locations of points where two vector fields are parallel. In general, these features are line structures. The PV operator has been used successfully for a variety of problems, ...

      Yang, Yuting; Barnes, Connelly (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      We introduce a general method to approximate the convolution of a program with a Gaussian kernel. This results in the program being smoothed. Our compiler framework models intermediate values in the program as random ...
    • ARAPLBS: Robust and Efficient Elasticity‐Based Optimization of Weights and Skeleton Joints for Linear Blend Skinning with Parametrized Bones

      We present a fast, robust and high‐quality technique to skin a mesh with reference to a skeleton. We consider the space of possible skeleton deformations (based on skeletal constraints, or skeletal animations), and compute ...
    • Assessing Effects of Task and Data Distribution on the Effectiveness of Visual Encodings 

      Kim, Younghoon; Heer, Jeffrey (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      In addition to the choice of visual encodings, the effectiveness of a data visualization may vary with the analytical task being performed and the distribution of data values. To better assess these effects and create ...
    • Audiovisual Resource Allocation for Bimodal Virtual Environments 

      Doukakis, E.; Debattista, K.; Harvey, C.; Bashford‐Rogers, T.; Chalmers, A. (© 2018 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      Fidelity is of key importance if virtual environments are to be used as authentic representations of real environments. However, simulating the multitude of senses that comprise the human sensory system is computationally ...
    • Aura Mesh: Motion Retargeting to Preserve the Spatial Relationships between Skinned Characters 

      Jin, Taeil; Kim, Meekyoung; Lee, Sung-Hee (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      Applying motion-capture data to multi-person interaction between virtual characters is challenging because one needs to preserve the interaction semantics while also satisfying the general requirements of motion retargeting, ...
    • Baseball Timeline: Summarizing Baseball Plays Into a Static Visualization 

      Ono, Jorge H. Piazentin; Dietrich, Carlos; Silva, Claudio T. (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      In sports, Play Diagrams are the standard way to represent and convey information. They are widely used by coaches, managers, journalists and fans in general. There are situations where diagrams may be hard to understand, ...
    • Bladder Runner: Visual Analytics for the Exploration of RT-Induced Bladder Toxicity in a Cohort Study
