In this paper, we deal with layered predictive compression of animated meshes represented by series of 3D static meshes with same connectivity. We propose two schemes to improve the prediction. First improvement is using weighted spatial prediction rather than averaging neighbor vertices. The second improvement is a novel predictor based on rotation angle of incident triangles in current and previous frames. The experimental results show that around 6- 10 % bitrate reduction can be achieved by replacing the spatial prediction in the reference coder with the proposed weighted spatial prediction and 9- 18 % bitrate reduction is possible with the proposed angle based predictor using weighted spatial prediction, depending on the content and quantization level.

Improved prediction methods for scalable predictive animated mesh compression
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2011-10-01)
Animated meshes represented as sequences of static meshes sharing the same connectivity require efficient compression. Among the compression techniques, layered predictive coding methods efficiently encode the animated meshes in a structured way such that the successive reconstruction with an adaptable quality can be performed. The decoding quality heavily depends on how well the prediction is performed in the encoder. Due to this fact, in this paper, three novel prediction structures are proposed and integ...
Multiple Description Coding of 3D Dynamic Meshes Based on Temporal Subsampling
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2010-01-21)
In this paper, we propose a Multiple Description Coding (MDC) method for reliable transmission of compressed time consistent 3D dynamic meshes. It trades off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The method is based on partitioning the mesh frames into two sets by temporal subsampling and encoding each set independently by a 3D dynamic mesh coder. The encoded independent bitstreams or so-called descriptions are transm...

Development of cartesian based mesh generator with body fitted boundary layers
Özkan, Merve; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk.; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, the development of a Cartesian based mesh generator with body-fitted boundary layer is presented. The base of the developed mesh generator consists of Cartesian mesh. However, the boundary layer handling is a challenge with Cartesian mesh. Therefore, a body-fitted boundary layer is introduced to the mesh generator by putting a customized open source mesh generator into the main Cartesian based mesh generation. The boundary layer mesh generation part comes from the customized SUMO code, which...
Multiple description coding of animated meshes
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (Elsevier BV, 2010-11-01)
In this paper, we propose three novel multiple description coding (MDC) methods for reliable transmission of compressed animated meshes represented by series of 3D static meshes with same connectivity. The proposed methods trade off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The methods are based on layer duplication and partitioning of the set of vertices of a scalable coded animated mesh by either spatial or temporal sub...
