BTF Compression via Sparse Tensor Decomposition

  title={BTF Compression via Sparse Tensor Decomposition},
  author={Roland Ruiters and Reinhard Klein},
  journal={Comput. Graph. Forum},
In this paper, we present a novel compression technique for Bidirectional Texture Functions based on a sparse tensor decomposition. We apply the K-SVD algorithm along two different modes of a tensor to decompose it into a small dictionary and two sparse tensors. This representation is very compact, allowing for considerably better compression ratios at the same RMS error than possible with current compression techniques like PCA, N-mode SVD and Per Cluster Factorization. In contrast to other… CONTINUE READING
