Creating New Chinese Fonts based on Manifold Learning and Adversarial Networks
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)The design of fonts, especially Chinese fonts, is known as a tough task that requires considerable time and professional skills. In this paper, we propose a method to easily generate Chinese font libraries in new styles ...
A Preliminary Investigation into the Impact of Training for Example-Based Facial Blendshape Creation (The Eurographics Association, 2018)Our work is a perceptual study into the effects of training poses on the Example-Based Facial Rigging (EBFR) method. We analyse the output of EBFR given a set of training poses to see how well the results reproduced our ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)When it comes to locomotion in Virtual Reality (VR), a wide range of different techniques has been proposed in the scientific literature or as commercial products. However, the best choice for a specific application is ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)A pan-tilt camera system has been adopted by a variety of fields since it can cover a wide range of region compared to a single fixated camera setup. Yet many studies rely on factory-assembled and calibrated platforms and ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Additive manufacturing technologies fabricate objects layer by layer, adding material on top of already solidified layers. A key challenge is to ensure that there is always material below, for otherwise added material ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)We propose an augmentation of the traditional tessellation pipeline with several different strategies that efficiently render multisided patches using generalised barycentric coordinates. The strategies involve different ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)This paper presents two performance improvements on sphere tracing. First, a sphere tracing variant designed to take optimal step sizes near planar surfaces is proposed. We demonstrate how relaxation is used to make this ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)We describe a practical application of the Sigma Lognormal model of handwriting movements for computer graphics applications that require the interactive or procedural definition of artistic or calligraphic traces. The ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)The concept known as subdivision shading aims at improving the shading of subdivision surfaces. It is based on the subdivision of normal vectors associated with the control net of the surface. By either using the resulting ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)In general, an image is worth a thousand words, but sometimes, words are the most efficient tool to communicate some information. Thereupon, in this work, we will present an approach for combining the visual appeal of ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)We present a novel real-time raw point cloud rendering algorithm based on efficient screen-space pyramidal operators. Our method is based on a pyramidal occlusion-based hidden point removal operator followed by a pyramidal ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Optimized sampling masks that reduce the complexity of camera arrays while preserving the quality of light fields captured at high directional sampling resolution are presented. We propose a new quality metric that is based ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Research has suggested that children's whole-body motions are different from those of adults. However, research on children's motions, and how these motions differ from those of adults, is limited. One possible reason for ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)In this paper, we propose a physically-based method for a rigid body joint simulation. The proposed solution is based on the unified particle physics engine, a simulator that uses only particles for all the dynamic bodies. ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)When trying to make the conjugate gradient (CG) method exploit GPU technology, this paper notes that the communication between CPU and GPU to transfer the residual value and waiting for the CPU's decision whether to continue ...
(Eurographics Association, 2018)
(The Eurographics Association, 2018)Physics-based fluid simulation often produces unpredictable behavior that is difficult for artists to control. We present a new method for art directing smoke animation using time-reversed simulation. Given a final fluid ...
