    This article describes how the synthetic actors Marilyn Monroe and Humphrey Bogart were directed in the film Rendez-vous a Montreal, using the Human Factory software. Innovative points are emphasized. The recreation of famous persons and reconstitution of their personalities, as well as the corresponding animation, are considered from an artistic point of view. Technical points discussed are perso... View full abstract»

  • Solid Texturing of Soft Objects

    Since the shape of a soft object changes in response to its surroundings, it is difficult to give a single position in space as the location of the object. Indeed objects can and do break dynamically into subobjects. This means that you cannot map a solid texture onto such an object simply by using a function of the space coordinates. We have taken a different approach. Our soft objects are modele... View full abstract»

  • An Extended Rounding Operation for Modeling Solids with Free-Form Surfaces

    An extended rounding operation can be an excellent tool for modeling solids with free-form surfaces. Using the rounding operation, the edges and vertices of a solid can be locally rounded, and those parts of the solid are changed to free-form surfaces. As a user, you put in information about edges that should be rounded and the radii of curves generated by the operation. This facility has been imp... View full abstract»

  • Hierarchical Representations of 2D/3D Gray-Scale Images and Their 2D/3D Two-Way Conversion

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):37 - 44
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (8212 KB)

    This article proposes G-octree as an extension of G-quadtree to three dimensions. A G-octree reflects in its construction a hierarchy of gray-scale level value homogeneity, as well as a hierarchy of spatial resolution. The article also develops two-way G-quadtree/Goctree conversion procedures based on the algorithms for the binary case. These procedures provide an integrated processing environment...

  • A Gestural Representation of the Process of Composing Chinese Temples

    Concentrating on the process of design rather than on just the final design artifact, this research illustrates a computing-based design environment that can represent the process of composing Chinese temple facades. Temple compositions are constructed by generating tessellated vocabulary elements, relating vocabulary elements in a topological mosaic, and integrating the mosaic into temple facades...
