  • Data‐Parallel Decompression of Triangle Mesh Topology 

    Meyer, Quirin; Keinert, Benjamin; Sußner, Gerd; Stamminger, Marc (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We propose a lossless, single‐rate triangle mesh topology codec tailored for fast data‐parallel GPU decompression. Our compression scheme coherently orders generalized triangle strips in memory. To unpack generalized ...
  • Content‐Aware Automatic Photo Enhancement 

    Kaufman, Liad; Lischinski, Dani; Werman, Michael (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Automatic photo enhancement is one of the long‐standing goals in image processing and computational photography. While a variety of methods have been proposed for manipulating tone and colour, most automatic methods used ...
  • Extraction of Dominant Extremal Structures in Volumetric Data Using Separatrix Persistence 

    Günther, D.; Seidel, H.‐P.; Weinkauf, T. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Extremal lines and surfaces are features of a 3D scalar field where the scalar function becomes minimal or maximal with respect to a local neighborhood
  • Interactive Character Animation Using Simulated Physics: A State‐of‐the‐Art Review 

    Geijtenbeek, T.; Pronost, N. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Physics simulation offers the possibility of truly responsive and realistic animation. Despite wide adoption of physics simulation for the animation of passive phenomena, such as fluids, cloths and rag‐doll characters, ...
  • Comparison of Four Subjective Methods for Image Quality Assessment 

    Mantiuk, Rafał K.; Tomaszewska, Anna; Mantiuk, Radosław (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    To provide a convincing proof that a new method is better than the state of the art, computer graphics projects are often accompanied by user studies, in which a group of observers rank or rate results of several algorithms. ...
  • Smart Scribbles for Sketch Segmentation 

    Noris, G.; Sýkora, D.; Shamir, A.; Coros, S.; Whited, B.; Simmons, M.; Hornung, A.; Gross, M.; Sumner, R. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We present ‘Smart Scribbles’—a new scribble‐based interface for user‐guided segmentation of digital sketchy drawings. In contrast to previous approaches based on simple selection strategies, Smart Scribbles exploits richer ...
  • State of the Art Report on Video‐Based Graphics and Video Visualization 

    Borgo, R.; Chen, M.; Daubney, B.; Grundy, E.; Heidemann, G.; Höferlin, B.; Höferlin, M.; Leitte, H.; Weiskopf, D.; Xie, X. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    In recent years, a collection of new techniques which deal with video as input data, emerged in computer graphics and visualization. In this survey, we report the state of the art in video‐based graphics and video ...
  • Biharmonic Coordinates 

    Weber, Ofir; Poranne, Roi; Gotsman, Craig (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Barycentric coordinates are an established mathematical tool in computer graphics and geometry processing, providing a convenient way of interpolating scalar or vector data from the boundary of a planar domain to its ...
  • Geodesic Polar Coordinates on Polygonal Meshes 

    Melvær, Eivind Lyche; Reimers, Martin (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Geodesic Polar Coordinates (GPCs) on a smooth surface
  • Temporal Blending for Adaptive SPH 

    Orthmann, Jens; Kolb, Andreas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    In this paper, we introduce a fast and consistent smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) technique which is suitable for convection–diffusion simulations of incompressible fluids. We apply our temporal blending technique ...
  • Low‐Complexity Intervisibility in Height Fields 

    Timonen, Ville (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Global illumination systems require intervisibility information between pairs of points in a scene. This visibility problem is computationally complex, and current interactive implementations for dynamic scenes are limited ...
  • Computer Assisted Relief Generation—A Survey 

    Kerber, J.; Wang, M.; Chang, J.; Zhang, J. J.; Belyaev, A.; Seidel, H.‐P. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    In this paper, we present an overview of the achievements accomplished to date in the field of computer‐aided relief generation. We delineate the problem, classify different solutions, analyse similarities, investigate ...
  • Temporal Coherence Methods in Real‐Time Rendering 

    Scherzer, Daniel; Yang, Lei; Mattausch, Oliver; Nehab, Diego; Sander, Pedro V.; Wimmer, Michael; Eisemann, Elmar (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Nowadays, there is a strong trend towards rendering to higher‐resolution displays and at high frame rates. This development aims at delivering more detail and better accuracy, but it also comes at a significant cost. ...
  • Visualization for the Physical Sciences 

    Lipşa, Dan R.; Laramee, Robert S.; Cox, Simon J.; Roberts, Jonathan C.; Walker, Rick; Borkin, Michelle A.; Pfister, Hanspeter (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Close collaboration with other scientific fields is an important goal for the visualization community. Yet engaging in a scientific collaboration can be challenging. The physical sciences, namely astronomy, chemistry, earth ...
  • Dependency‐Free Parallel Progressive Meshes 

    Derzapf, E.; Guthe, M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The constantly increasing complexity of polygonal models in interactive applications poses two major problems. First, the number of primitives that can be rendered at real‐time frame rates is currently limited to a few ...
  • CageR: Cage‐Based Reverse Engineering of Animated 3D Shapes 

    Thiery, Jean‐Marc; Tierny, Julien; Boubekeur, Tamy (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We present CageR: A novel framework for converting animated 3D shape sequences into compact and stable cage‐based representations. Given a raw animated sequence with one‐to‐one point correspondences together with an initial ...
  • Linear Surface Reconstruction from Discrete Fundamental Forms on Triangle Meshes 

    Wang, Y.; Liu, B.; Tong, Y. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    We present a linear algorithm to reconstruct the vertex coordinates for a surface mesh given its edge lengths and dihedral angles, unique up to rotation and translation. A local integrability condition for the existence ...
