Elastic Implicit Skinning: This video illustrates the use of field function compositions for improving the realism of skin deformations at joints when animating an articulated model. A tangential relaxation scheme derived from the ARAP energy controls mesh distortions. This technique is interactive and improves field function based mesh deformations. Published at Siggraph Asia 2014 (Transactions on Graphics 33(6)).
Implicit Decals: Interactive placement and editing of a large number of decals on surfaces. Our decals can blend, overlap or deform in contact. This research has been accepted for publication in Computer Graphics Forum.
