We build on state of the art methods for multiresolution embedded coding of images, such as Said and Pearlman’s Set Partitioning In Hierarchical Trees, and combine them with ideas for 3D objects modelling with subdivision surfaces, to obtain a new technique for hierarchical 3D model coding. The compression ratios we obtain are better than or similar to previously reported ones but, perhaps more importantly, the truly hierarchical coding of 3D objects we propose allows their efficient… CONTINUE READING
