  • Feature-Aware Mesh for Image Retargeting 

    Niu, Yuzhen; Liu, Feng; Lai, Yu-chi (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    Image retargeting adapts an input image to displays other than originally intended while minimizing visual distortion. Most warping-based methods formulate retargeting as a spatially-varying warping problem over a uniform ...

    Wang, Shengfa; Hou, Tingbo; Su, Zhixun; Qin, Hong (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    This paper presents an efficient method for feature definition and classification on shapes. We tackle this challenge by exploring the weighted harmonic field (WHF), which is also the stable state of a heat diffusion ...
  • Facial Retargeting by Adding Supplemental Blendshapes 

    Kim, Paul Hyunjin; Seol, Yeongho; Song, Jaewon; Noh, Junyong (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    This paper introduces a novel method to add a minimal set of missing blendshapes to automatically improve the quality of the retargeting result. Our approach compares the expression spaces defined by the source and the ...
  • Real-time Rendering of Endless Cloud Animation 

    Iwasaki, Kei; Nishino, Takanori; Dobashi, Yoshinori (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    In this paper, we propose a real-time animation method for dynamic clouds illuminated by sunlight and skylight with multiple scattering. In order to create animations of outdoor scenes, it is necessary to render time-varying ...
  • A Fast Simulation Method Using SPH and Wavelet for Sub-Particle-Scale Turbulent Flow 

    Fujisawa, Makoto; Mimura, Go; Amano, Toshiyuki; Miyazaki, Jun; Kato, Hirokazu (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    This paper presents a fast simulation method for turbulent flow which uses a particle method and wavelet analysis. To simulate fluid flow, the method uses smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH), which discretizes the fluid ...
  • Interactive Design of Planar Curved Folding by Reflection 

    Mitani, Jun; Igarashi, Takeo (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    Designing curved folds of a developable surface remains an open problem. No analytical method for the design of curved folds has been reported. Although optimization methods exist, it is difficult to interactively design ...
  • Sketch-based Breaking Waves 

    Zhang, Guijuan; Wen, Gaojin; Zhu, Dengming; Lu, Dianjie; Feng, Shengzhong (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    We present a sketching method for animating breaking waves in this paper. Our approach allows an animator to control physically-based wave breaking effects by drawing the outline of the wave shape intuitively. To do this, ...
  • Virtual City Map Generation using Area Subdivision 

    Müller, Kerstin; Heischbourg, Luc; Fünfzig, Christoph; Petsch, Sebastian; Hagen, Hans (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    In this paper we present a new approach to build typical street networks for urban and rural areas automatically. Most street networks have a characteristic appearance which is a mixture between a kind of a regular spreading ...
  • Feature Adaptive Surfel Set Simplification 

    Huang, Yan; Yan, Feihu; Wang, Bei; Peng, Jingliang (The Eurographics Association, 2011)
    In this paper we propose a novel scheme for simplifying a surfel set with the resultant surfels computed and distributed in an effort to preserve prominent geometric and textural features with a reduced number of primitives. ...
