Image morphing using deformation techniques
free download

SUMMARY This paper presents a new image morphing method using a two-dimensional deformation technique which provides an intuitive model for a warp. The deformation technique derives a C1-continuous and one-to-one warp from a set of point pairs overlaid 

Application of optimization techniques in the conceptual design of morphing aircraft

ABSTRACT Because of successes in advancing smart materials and adaptive structures, there is a growing interest in morphing aircraft that can substantially change their shape during flight to perform in highly dissimilar flight conditions with high efficiency. Important 

Usefulness of image morphing techniques in cancer treatment by conformal radiotherapy
free download

ABSTRACT Conformal radiotherapy is a cancer treatment technique, that targets high-energy X- rays to tumors with minimal exposure to surrounding healthy tissues. Irradiation ballistics is calculated based on an initial 3D Computerized Tomography (CT) scan. At every 

Interactively morphing irregularly shaped images employing subdivision techniques
free download

ABSTRACT The morphing or metamorphosis of images is often used to generate special effects in films and animation. In many cases only a part of an image will be affected by the morph, and often that part has an irregular shape. This work presents a new interactive technique 

Visualizing the Evolution of Horned Lizards Using 3D Morphing Techniques
free download

Reconstructing the evolutionary history of diverse species is a basic goal of systematic biology and is essential to comparative biology. Phylogenies representing this history are constructed from the analyses of molecular or morphological data and used as tools for 

Satellite-based rainfall estimates over West Africa based on combining Morphing and the Histogram-Matching techniques
free download

A new methodology based on a mixture of the Morphing and the Histogram-Matching technique is implemented and applied to the rainy season 2004 for the West Africa region (latitude between 5 S and 20 N, longitude between 25 W and 25 E). For this purpose 

MORPHING AND FITTING TECHNIQUES OF FINITE-ELEMENT MODELS USING THE TRACTION METHOD
free download

ABSTRACT This paper presents two types of methods, that we call a morphing method and a fitting method, to deform finiteelement models for skeletal parts to accord with medical image data, such as X-ray photographs and voxel image data by the CT scanner or MRI. The 

Kernel Techniques for Audio Morphing
free download

ABSTRACT Inspired by a formal analogy between the two dimensional version of Laplace's partial differential equation and the two dimensions (time and frequency) of a spectrogram, this paper explores a variety of density and kernelbased techniques that can smoothly 

Techniques for automated and interactive note sequence morphing of mainstream electronic music
free download

ABSTRACT Note sequence morphing is the combination of two note sequences to create a 'hybrid transition', or 'morph'. The morph is a 'hybrid'in the sense that it exhibits properties of both sequences. The morph is also a 'transition', in that it can segue between them. An 

Automated moving mesh techniques and re-meshing strategies in CFD applications usingmorphing and rigid motions. Technical Report
free download

ABSTRACT The presence of moving meshes when motions of fluids and solids are being simulated requires a good control of the topological deformations that can take place both into the surface mesh and into the volume cells. The work done in getting the control of the

 We compare various morphing techniques, including those based on  We surveyed various morph- ing techniques, including those based on mesh warping, field morphing, radial basis functions, thin plate splines, energy minimization, and multi- level free-form deformations. 

A survey of facial modeling and animation techniques
free download

 Section 1 and 2 introduce the interpolation techniques and parameterizations followed by the animation methods using 2D and 3D morphing techniques in section 3. The Facial Action Coding System, a frequently used facial description tool, is summarized in section 4. Physics 

Visualization by metamorphosis

For most morphing techniques the transition parameter is limited to [0,1]. Obviously a space of objects constructed from two base objects is one-dimensional. Adding another object adds a degree of freedom.  Page 4. morphing techniques have to be evaluated. 

Interactive surface decomposition for polyhedral morphing
free download

 Image and object morphing techniques have gained increasing importance in the last few years.  However, 3D morphing is independent of viewing or lighting pa- rameters. Having a 3D representation also allows the use of computer animation techniques such as keyframing. 

Morphing with laplacian coordinates and spatial-temporal texture

 Figure 5: Texture morphing between a horse-rider and a runner. Like other morphing techniques based on boundary representations [5, 6, 9], our method does not ex- plicitly consider the interior regions while interpo- lating the boundary curves. 

Video based animation techniques for human motion
