GPU Ray Tracing using Irregular Grids
Parallel BVH Construction using Progressive Hierarchical Refinement
A GPU-Adapted Structure for Unstructured Grids
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We propose a novel algorithm for construction of bounding volume hierarchies (BVHs) for multi-core CPU architectures. The algorithm constructs the BVH by a divisive top-down approach using a progressively refined cut of ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)A key advantage of working with structured grids (e.g., images) is the ability to directly tap into the powerful machinery of linear algebra. This is not much so for unstructured grids where intermediate bookkeeping data ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Drawing the user's gaze to an important item in an image or a graphical user interface is a common challenge. Usually, some form of highlighting is used, such as a clearly distinct color or a border around the item. Flicker ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We present a spatial index structure to accelerate ray tracing on GPUs. It is a flat, non-hierarchical spatial subdivision of the scene into axis aligned cells of varying size. In order to construct it, we first nest an ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Recordings of stage performances are easy to capture with a high-resolution camera, but are difficult to watch because the actors' faces are too small. We present an approach to automatically create a split screen video ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Rendering translucent materials in real time is usually done by using surface diffusion and/or (translucent) shadow maps. The downsides of these approaches are, that surface diffusion cannot handle translucency effects ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We address the problem of constructing appearance-preserving level of details (LoDs) of complex 3D models such as trees. We propose a hybrid method that combines the strengths of mesh and volume representations. Our main ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)This paper focuses on microfacet reflectance models, and more precisely on the definition of a new and more general distribution function, which includes both Beckmann's and GGX distributions widely used in the computer ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)This paper proposes a pipeline to accurately acquire, efficiently reproduce and intuitively manipulate phosphorescent appearance. In contrast to common appearance models, a model of phosphorescence needs to account for ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Visual formats have advanced beyond single-view images and videos: 3D movies are commonplace, researchers have developed multi-view navigation systems, and VR is helping to push light field cameras to mass market. However, ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We present a technique for controlling physically simulated characters using user inputs from an off-the-shelf depth camera. Our controller takes a real-time stream of user poses as input, and simulates a stream of target ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Quantitative analysis of cave systems represented as 3D models is becoming more and more important in the field of cave sciences. One open question is the rigorous identification of chambers in a data set, which has a deep ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)The visual richness of computer graphics applications is frequently limited by the difficulty of obtaining high-quality, detailed 3D models. This paper proposes a method for realistically transferring details (specifically, ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We address the problem of making human motion capture in the wild more practical by using a small set of inertial sensors attached to the body. Since the problem is heavily under-constrained, previous methods either use a ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Most recent crowd simulation algorithms equip agents with a synthetic vision component for steering. They offer promising perspectives through a more realistic simulation of the way humans navigate according to their ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We present a real-time multi-view facial capture system facilitated by synthetic training imagery. Our method is able to achieve high-quality markerless facial performance capture in real-time from multi-view helmet camera ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We propose the first system for live dynamic augmentation of human faces. Using projector-based illumination, we alter the appearance of human performers during novel performances. The key challenge of live augmentation ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)We present a multi-view stereo reconstruction technique that directly produces a complete high-fidelity head model with consistent facial mesh topology. While existing techniques decouple shape estimation and facial tracking, ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)Physical simulation has long been the approach of choice for generating realistic hair animations in CG. A constant drawback of simulation, however, is the necessity to manually set the physical parameters of the simulation ...
(The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)3D garment capture is an important component for various applications such as free-view point video, virtual avatars, online shopping, and virtual cloth fitting. Due to the complexity of the deformations, capturing 3D ...
