Harmonic Coordinates for Character Articulation

Pushkar Joshi, Mark Meyer, Tony DeRose, Brian Green, Tom Sanocki
May 2007

In this paper we consider the problem of creating and controlling volume deformations used to articulate characters for use in high-end applications such as computer generated feature films. We introduce a method we call harmonic coordinates that significantly improves upon existing volume deformation techniques. Our deformations are controlled using a topologically flexible structure, called a cage, ... more
