  • Information-Guided Transfer Function Refinement 

    Luo, Shengzhou; Dingliana, John (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    This paper examines the methods for exploring volume data by optimization of visualization parameters. The size and complexity of the parameter space controlling the rendering process makes it challenging to generate an ...
  • Post-Tessellation Geometry Caches 

    Sathe, Rahul; Foley, Tim; Salvi, Marco (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Current 3D rendering architectures support adaptive tessellation of patches, allowing for increased geometric detail. Patches are specified independently, giving the implementation freedom to exploit parallel execution. ...
  • A User Study: Is the Advection Step in Shallow Water Equations Really Necessary? 

    Kellomäki, Timo; Saari, Timo (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Heightfield methods, such as the pipe method and shallow water equations (SWE), have often been used to simulate large areas of water. Of these, the SWE are often preferred due to being more realistic, but they are also ...
  • Latency Considerations of Depth-first GPU Ray Tracing 

    Guthe, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Despite the potential divergence of depth-first ray tracing [AL09], it is nevertheless the most efficient approach on massively parallel graphics processors. Due to the use of specialized caching strategies that were ...
  • Deferred Shading for Order-Independent Transparency 

    Hillesland, Karl E.; Bilodeau, Bill; Thibieroz, Nicolas (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Rendering many layers of transparency presents difficult challenges with respect to performance. Most previous work focused on the sorting problem, paying the full shading cost for all fragments. We present a method that ...
  • Regional Time Stepping for SPH 

    Goswami, Prashant; Batty, Christopher (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    This paper presents novel and efficient strategies to spatially adapt the amount of computational effort applied based on the local dynamics of a free surface flow, for classic weakly compressible SPH (WCSPH). Using a ...
  • CSG Feature Trees from Engineering Sketches of Polyhedral Shapes 

    Plumed, Raquel; Company, Pedro; Varley, Peter A. C.; Martin, Ralph R. (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    We give a method to obtain a 3D CSG model from a 2D engineering wireframe sketch which depicts a polyhedral shape. The method finds a CSG feature tree compatible with a reverse design history of a 2D line-drawing obtained ...
  • Data Driven Assembly of Procedurally Modeled Facilities 

    Bishop, M. Scott; Ferrer, Josè; Max, Nelson (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    We present a method to arrange components of industrial facilities in a constrained site footprint. We use a probabilistic graphical model of industrial sites and existing procedural modeling methods to automate the assembly ...
  • Unsupervised Three-dimensional Reconstruction of Small Rocks from a Single Two-dimensional Image 

    Gilardi, Marco; Watten, Phil L.; Newbury, Paul (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Surfaces covered with pebbles and small rocks can often be found in nature or in human-shaped environments. Generating an accurate three-dimensional model of these kind of surfaces from a reference image can be challenging, ...
  • HDR Reconstruction for Alternating Gain (ISO) Sensor Readout 

    Hajisharif, Saghi; Kronander, Joel; Unger, Jonas (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Modern image sensors are becoming more and more flexible in the way an image is captured. In this paper, we focus on sensors that allow the per pixel gain to be varied over the sensor and develop a new technique for efficient ...
  • Towards Understanding Beautiful Things: A Computational Approach for the Study of Color Modulation in Visual Art 

    Agahchen, Anissa; Albu, Alexandra Branzan (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    This paper is a guided attempt at analyzing the aesthetics of color from the perspective of color theory. Our guides are the works of Johannes Itten, one of the most influential theorists of color aesthetics. We focus on ...
  • A Tone Reproduction Operator for All Luminance Ranges Considering Human Color Perception 

    Mikamo, Michihiro; Raytchev, Bisser; Tamaki, Toru; Kaneda, Kazufumi (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    In this paper, we present a novel tone reproduction operator that is able to handle the color shift that occurs in photopic, mesopic, and scotopic vision, using a model based on a two-stage model of human color vision and ...
  • Combining Inertial Navigation and ICP for Real-time 3D Surface Reconstruction 

    Nießner, Matthias; Dai, Angela; Fisher, Matthew (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    We present a novel method to improve the robustness of real-time 3D surface reconstruction by incorporating inertial sensor data when determining inter-frame alignment. With commodity inertial sensors, we can significantly ...
  • Merging Live and pre-Captured Data to support Full 3D Head Reconstruction for Telepresence 

    Fleury, Cedric; Popa, Tiberiu; Cham, Tat Jen; Fuchs, Henry (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    This paper proposes a 3D head reconstruction method for low cost 3D telepresence systems that uses only a single consumer level hybrid sensor (color+depth) located in front of the users. Our method fuses the real-time, ...
  • Unified Skeletal Animation Reconstruction with Multiple Kinects 

    Ahmed, Naveed (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
