CVSSP receives Honorable mention for Best Paper Award ACM SIGGRAPH I3D 2012
Friday 23 March 2012
Congratulations to Dan Casas, Margara Tejera, Jean-Yves Guillemaut and Adrian Hilton who received the "Honorable Mention for the Best Paper Award" at the ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium in Interactive 3D Graphics and Games which was held in early March in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California .
I3D is the leading conference for real time 3D computer graphics and human interaction http://graphics.ics.uci.edu/I3D2012/
Dan Casas presented the paper "4D Parametric Motion Graphs for Interactive Animation". A copy of the paper and the video could be found at http://info.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Personal/D.Casasguix/casas_I3D2012.php
A 4D parametric motion graph representation is presented for interactive animation from actor performance capture in a multiple camera studio. The representation is based on a 4D model database of temporally aligned mesh sequence reconstructions for multiple motions. High-level movement controls such as speed and direction are achieved by blending multiple mesh sequences of related motions. A real-time mesh sequence blending approach is introduced which combines the realistic deformation of previous non-linear solutions with efficient online computation. Transitions between different parametric motion spaces are evaluated in real-time based on surface shape and motion similarity. 4D parametric motion graphs allow real-time interactive character animation while preserving the natural dynamics of the captured performance.
