We propose a shape template morphing approach suitable for any class of shapes that exhibits approximate reflective symmetry over some plane. The human face and full head are examples. A shape morphing algorithm that constrains all morphs to be symmetric is a form of deformation regulation. This mitigates undesirable effects seen in standard morphing algorithms that are not symmetry-aware, such as tangential sliding. Our method builds on the Coherent Point Drift (CPD) algorithm and is called… CONTINUE READING
