    • Learning good views through intelligent galleries 

      Vieira, Thales; Bordignon, Alex; Peixoto, Adelailson; Tavares, Geovan; Lopes, Helio; Velho, Luiz; Lewiner, Thomas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      The definition of a good view of a 3D scene is highly subjective and strongly depends on both the scene content and the 3D application. Usually, camera placement is performed directly by the user, and that task may be ...
    • Symmetry Detection Using Feature Lines 

      Bokeloh, M.; Berner, A.; Wand, M.; Seidel, H.-P.; Schilling, A. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      In this paper, we describe a new algorithm for detecting structural redundancy in geometric data sets. Our algorithm computes rigid symmetries, i.e., subsets of a surface model that reoccur several times within the model ...
    • Animating Pictures of Fluid using Video Examples 

      Okabe, Makoto; Anjyo, Ken; Igarashi, Takeo; Seidel, Hans-Peter (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      We propose a system that allows the user to design a continuous flow animation starting from a still fluid image. The basic idea is to apply the fluid motion extracted from a video example to the target image. The system ...
    • Detecting Symmetries and Curvilinear Arrangements in Vector Art 

      Yeh, Yi-Ting; Mech, Radomir (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Understanding symmetries and arrangements in existing content is the first step towards providing higher level content aware editing capabilities. Such capabilities may include edits that both preserve existing structure ...
    • Dominant Texture and Diffusion Distance Manifolds 

      Lu, Jianye; Dorsey, Julie; Rushmeier, Holly (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Texture synthesis techniques require nearly uniform texture samples, however identifying suitable texture samples in an image requires significant data preprocessing. To eliminate this work, we introduce a fully automatic ...
    • Example-Based Rendering of Eye Movements 

      Banf, Michael and Blanz, Volker (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      This paper describes a model for example-based, photo-realistic rendering of eye movements in 3D facial animation. Based on 3D scans of a face with different gaze directions, the model captures the motion of the eyeball ...
    • Table-based Alpha Compression 

      Wennersten, Per; Stroem, Jacob (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
    • Image Appearance Exploration by Model-Based Navigation 

      Shapira, L.; Shamir, A.; Cohen-Or, D. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Changing the appearance of an image can be a complex and non-intuitive task. Many times the target image colors and look are only known vaguely and many trials are needed to reach the desired results. Moreover, the effect ...
    • Complex Barycentric Coordinates with Applications to Planar Shape Deformation 

      Weber, Ofir; Ben-Chen, Mirela; Gotsman, Craig (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
    • TopoPlan: a topological path planner for real time human navigation under floor and ceiling constraints 

      Lamarche, F. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      In this article we present TopoPlan, a topological planner dedicated to real-time humanoid path-planning and motion adaptation to floor and ceiling constraints inside complex static environments. This planner analyzes ...
    • LazyBrush: Flexible Painting Tool for Hand-drawn Cartoons 

      Sykora, Daniel; Dingliana, John; Collins, Steven (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      In this paper we present LazyBrush, a novel interactive tool for painting hand-made cartoon drawings and animations. Its key advantage is simplicity and flexibility. As opposed to previous custom tailored approaches [SBv05, ...
    • Spectral-Based Group Formation Control 

      Takahashi, Shigeo; Yoshida, Kenichi; Kwon, Taesoo; Lee, Kang Hoon; Lee, Jehee; Shin, Sung Yong (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Given a pair of keyframe formations for a group consisting of multiple individuals, we present a spectral-based approach to smoothly transforming a source group formation into a target formation while respecting the clusters ...
    • Deblurring by Matching 

      Ancuti, Cosmin; Ancuti, Codruta Orniana; Bekaert, Philippe (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Restoration of the photographs damaged by the camera shake is a challenging task that manifested increasing attention in the recent period. Despite of the important progress of the blind deconvolution techniques, due to ...
    • Importance Sampling Spherical Harmonics 

      Jarosz, Wojciech; Carr, Nathan A.; Jensen, Henrik Wann (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      In this paper we present the first practical method for importance sampling functions represented as spherical harmonics (SH). Given a spherical probability density function (PDF) represented as a vector of SH coefficients, ...
    • Continuum-based Strain Limiting 

      Thomaszewski, Bernhard; Pabst, Simon; Strasser, Wolfgang (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      We present Continuum-based Strain Limiting (CSL) - a new method for limiting deformations in physically-based cloth simulations. Despite recent developments for nearly inextensible materials, the efficient simulation of ...
    • Compressive Dual Photography 

      Sen, Pradeep; Darabi, Soheil (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      The accurate measurement of the light transport characteristics of a complex scene is an important goal in computer graphics and has applications in relighting and dual photography. However, since the light transport data ...
    • Fast GPU-based Adaptive Tessellation with CUDA 

      Schwarz, Michael; Stamminger, Marc (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Compact surface descriptions like higher-order surfaces are popular representations for both modeling and animation. However, for fast graphics-hardware-assisted rendering, they usually need to be converted to triangle ...
    • Color correction for tone mapping 

      Mantiuk, R.; Mantiuk, R.; Tomaszewska, A.; Heidrich, W. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      Tone mapping algorithms offer sophisticated methods for mapping a real-world luminance range to the luminance range of the output medium but they often cause changes in color appearance. In this work we conduct a series ...
    • Physics-driven Multi Dimensional Keyframe Animation for Artist-directable Interactive Character
