      We present a fast and simple filtering method designed for ray traced Monte Carlo global illumination images which achieves real-time rates. Even on modern hardware only few samples can be traced for interactive applications, ...
    • Edge-Aware Volume Smoothing Using L0 Gradient Minimization 

      Wang, Qichao; Tao, Yubo; Lin, Hai (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2015)
      In volume visualization, noise in regions of homogeneous material and at boundaries between different materials poses a great challenge in extracting, analyzing and rendering features of interest. In this paper, we present ...
    • Edge-based LBP Description of Surfaces with Colorimetric Patterns 

      Thompson, Elia Moscoso; Biasotti, Silvia (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      In this paper we target the problem of the retrieval of colour patterns over surfaces. We generalize to surface tessellations the well known Local Binary Pattern (LBP) descriptor for images. The key concept of the LBP is ...
    • Edge-Sharpener: Recovering sharp features in triangulations of non-adaptively re-meshed surfaces 

      Attene, Marco; Falcidieno, Bianca; Rossignac, Jarek; Spagnuolo, Michela (The Eurographics Association, 2003)
      3D scanners, iso-surface extraction procedures, and several recent geometric compression schemes sample surfaces of 3D shapes in a regular fashion, without any attempt to align the samples with the sharp edges and corners ...
    • An Edit Distance for Reeb Graphs 

      Bauer, Ulrich; Fabio, Barbara Di; Landi, Claudia (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      We consider the problem of assessing the similarity of 3D shapes using Reeb graphs from the standpoint of robustness under perturbations. For this purpose, 3D objects are viewed as spaces endowed with real-valued functions, ...
    • Editing Dynamic Human Motions via Momentum and Force 

      Sok, Kwang Won; Yamane, Katsu; Lee, Jehee; Hodgins, Jessica K. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
      We present an integrated framework for interactive editing of the momentum and external forces in a motion capture sequence. Allowing user control of the momentum and forces provides a powerful and intuitive editing tool ...
    • Editing Level-Set Models with Sketched Curves 

      Eyiyurekli, M.; Grimm, C.; Breen, D. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      Level set models are deformable implicit surfaces where the deformation is controlled by a speed function in the level set partial differential equation (PDE). These models are widely used in computer graphics applications ...
    • Educational Virtual Reality Visualisations of Heritage Sites 

      John, David; Shaw, Lawrence; Cheetham, Paul; Manley, Harry; Stone, Aaron A.; Blakeburn, Michaela; Gosling, Karl (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
