Parameterization of 3D mesh data is important for many graphics applications, in particular for texture mapping, remeshing and morphing. Closed manifold genus-0 meshes are topologically equivalent to a sphere, hence this is the natural parameter domain for them. Parameterizing a triangle mesh onto the sphere means assigning a 3D position on the unit sphere(More)
Many geometry processing applications, such as morphing, shape blending, transfer of texture or material properties, and fitting template meshes to scan data, require a bijective mapping between two or more models. This mapping, or <i>cross-parameterization</i>, typically needs to preserve the shape and features of the parameterized models, mapping legs to(More)
Figure 1: High quality all-hex meshes of complex shapes automatically generated by our method and the PolyCubes we compute to create them. For the kiss both fine and coarse meshes are shown. Abstract While hexahedral mesh elements are preferred by a variety of simulation techniques, constructing quality all-hex meshes of general shapes remains a challenge.(More)
We present a new globally smooth parameterization method for the triangulated surfaces of arbitrary topology. Given two orthogonal piecewise linear vector fields defined over the input mesh (typically the estimated principal curvature directions), our method computes two piecewise linear periodic functions, aligned with the input vector fields, by(More)
Texture mapping enhances the visual realism of 3D models by adding fine details. To achieve the best results, it is often necessary to force a correspondence between some of the details of the texture and the features of the model.The most common method for mapping texture onto 3D meshes is to use a planar parameterization of the mesh. This, however, does(More)
We propose a novel, design-driven, approach to quadrangulation of closed 3D curves created by sketch-based or other curve modeling systems. Unlike the multitude of approaches for quad-remeshing of existing surfaces, we rely solely on the input curves to both conceive and construct the quad-mesh of an artist imagined surface bounded by them. We observe that(More)
Conformal parameterization of mesh models has numerous applicationsin geometry processing. Conformality is desirable for remeshing,surface reconstruction, and many other mesh processingapplications. Subject to the conformality requirement, theseapplications typically benefit from parameterizations with smallerstretch. The Angle Based Flattening (ABF)(More)
We introduce a purely passive facial capture approach that uses only an array of video cameras, but requires no template facial geometry, no special makeup or markers, and no active lighting. We obtain initial geometry using multi-view stereo, and then use a novel approach for automatically tracking texture detail across the frames. As a result, we obtain a(More)
