We present a novel framework which can efficiently evaluate approximate Boolean set operations for B-rep models by highly parallel algorithms. This is achieved by taking axis-aligned surfels of Layered Depth Images (LDI) as a bridge and performing Boolean operations on the structured points. As compared with prior surfel-based approaches, this paper has(More)
Convolution surface has the advantage of being crease-free and bulge-free over other kinds of implicit surfaces. Among the various types of skeletal elements, line segments can be considered one of the most fundamental as they can approximate curve skeletons. This paper presents analytical solutions for convolving line segments with varying kernels(More)
Existing real-time automatic video abstraction systems rely on local contrast only for identifying perceptually important information and abstract imagery by reducing contrast in low-contrast regions while artificially increasing contrast in higher contrast regions. These methods, however, may fail to accentuate an object against its background for the(More)
This paper presents a single-view hair modeling technique for generating visually and physically plausible 3D hair models with modest user interaction. By solving an unambiguous 3D vector field explicitly from the image and adopting an iterative hair generation algorithm, we can create hair models that not only visually match the original input very well(More)
Interpolating implicit surfaces using radial basis functions can directly specify surface points and surface normals with closed form solutions, so they are elegantly used in surface reconstruction and shape morphing. This paper presents subdivision interpolating implicit surfaces, a new progressive subdivision tessellation scheme for interpolating implicit(More)
A new free-from deformation method is presented in this paper. Object deformation is controlled by a mesh of arbitrary topology, namely a control mesh. The subdivision surface determined by the control mesh spans an intermediate deformation space. The object is embedded into the space by the nearest point rule. When the shape of control mesh is changed, the(More)
