Animated deformations with radial basis functions

  title={Animated deformations with radial basis functions},
  author={Jun-yong Noh and Douglas Fidaleo and Ulrich Neumann},
We present a novel approach to creating deformations of polygonal models using Radial Basis Functions (RBFs) to produce localized real-time deformations. Radial Basis Functions assume surface smoothness as a minimal constraint and animations produce smooth displacements of affected vertices in a model. Animations are produced by controlling an arbitrary sparse set of control points defined on or near the surface of the model. The ability to directly manipulate a facial surface with a small… CONTINUE READING
