We propose a novel formulation to express the attachment of a polygonal surface to a skeleton using purely linear terms. This enables to simultaneously adapt the pose and shape of an articulated model in an efficient way. Our work is motivated by the difficulty to constrain a mesh when adapting it to multi-view silhouette images. However, such an adaption(More)
We propose a new method to quickly and robustly estimate the 3D pose of the human skeleton from volumetric body scans without the need for visual markers. The core principle of our algorithm is to apply a fast center-line extraction to 3D voxel data and robustly fit a skeleton model to the resulting graph. Our algorithm allows for automatic, single-frame(More)
We present a system that allows users to interactively control a 3D model of themselves at home using a commodity depth camera. It augments the model with virtual clothes that can be downloaded. As a result, users can enjoy a private, virtual try-on experience in their own homes. As a prerequisite, the user needs to enter or pass through a multi-camera(More)
Many mixed reality systems require the real-time capture and re-rendering of the real world to integrate real objects more closely with the virtual graphics. This includes novel view-point synthesis for virtual mirror or telepresence applications. For real-time performance, the latency between capturing the real world and producing the virtual output needs(More)
We present a Virtual Mirror system which is able to simulate a physically correct full-body mirror on a monitor. In addition, users can freely rotate the mirror image which allows them to look at themselves from the side or from the back, for example. This is achieved through a multiple camera system and visual hull based rendering. A real-time 3D(More)
—We present a novel approach to adapt a watertight polygonal model of the human body to multiple synchronized camera views. While previous approaches yield excellent quality for this task, they require processing times of several seconds, especially for high resolution meshes. Our approach delivers high quality results at interactive rates when a roughly(More)
Virtual try-on applications have become popular because they allow users to watch themselves wearing different clothes without the effort of changing them physically. This helps users to make quick buying decisions and, thus, improves the sales efficiency of retailers. Previous solutions usually involve motion capture, 3D reconstruction or modeling, which(More)
Many virtual mirror and telepresence applications require novel viewpoint synthesis with little latency to user motion. Image-based visual hull (IBVH) rendering is capable of rendering arbitrary views from segmented images without an explicit intermediate data representation, such as a mesh or a voxel grid. By computing depth images directly from the(More)
Image-based visual hull rendering is a method for generating depth maps of a desired viewpoint from a set of silhouette images captured by calibrated cameras. It does not compute a view-independent data representation, such as a voxel grid or a mesh, which makes it particularly efficient for dynamic scenes. When users are captured, the scene is usually(More)
