Skeleton is at the main interest of 3D character animation. In this paper, we use a recent skeleton pruning method based on the medial axis transform and the geodesic distance function that originates one-voxel thick, graph-like skeleton. Unfortunately, the location of skeleton joints does not usually match the anatomical joint of the model. We introduce a novel method for smoothing the pruned skeleton for realistic character animation by using the filtering process for adjusting the locations… CONTINUE READING
