Head modeling with camera auto-calibration and deformation

Hassanpour, R
Atalay, Mehmet Volkan
A 3D head modeling method from a sequence of 2D images is described. The views from which the input images are acquired are not calibrated., Therefore, an auto-calibration method for a sequence of images with small rotations and translation is developed. For this purpose, we have modified an already existing auto-calibration algorithm to incorporate known aspect ratio and skew values to make it applicable for small rotation around a single axis. We apply this auto-calibration technique to head (face) modeling. Three dimensional positions of known facial features computed from two dimensional images are used to. deform a generic head model by using a spring based energy minimization method.


High resolution computational spectral imaging with photon sieves
Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Davila, Joseph (2014-10-27)
Photon sieves, modifications of Fresnel zone plates, are a new class of diffractive image forming devices that open up new possibilities for high resolution imaging and spectroscopy, especially at UV and x-ray regime. In this paper, we develop a novel computational photon sieve imaging modality that enables high-resolution spectral imaging. For the spatially incoherent illumination, we study the problem of recovering the individual spectral images from the superimposed and blurred measurements of the propos...
Temporal watermarking of digital video
Koz, A; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2003-04-11)
A video watermarking method is presented, based on the temporal sensitivity of Human Visual System (HVS). The method exploits the temporal contrast thresholds of HVS to determine the spatio-temporal locations, where the watermark should be embedded, and the maximum strength of watermark, which still gives imperceptible distortion after watermark insertion. The robustness results indicate that the proposed scheme survives video distortions, such as additive Gaussian noise, ITU H.263+ coding at medium bit rat...
Part-based data-driven shape interpolation
Aydınlılar, Melike; Sahillioğlu, Yusuf; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
An active problem in digital geometry processing is shape interpolation which aims to generate a continuous sequence of in-betweens for a given source and target shape. Unlike traditional approaches that interpolate source and target shapes in isolation, recent data-driven approaches utilize multiple interpolations through intermediate database shapes, and consequently perform better at the expense of a database requirement. In contrast to the existing data-driven approaches that consider intermediate shape...
Video Shot Boundary Detection by Graph-theoretic Dominant Sets Approach
Asan, Emrah; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2009-09-16)
We present a video shot boundary detection algorithm based on the novel graph theoretic concept, namely dominant sets. Dominant sets are defined as a set of the nodes in a graph, mostly similar to each other and dissimilar to the others. In order to achieve this goal, candidate shot boundaries are determined by using simply pixelwise differences between consequent frames. For each candidate position, a testing sequence is constructed by considering 4 frames before the candidate position and 2 frames after t...

This paper describes a system for modeling, animating, previewing and rendering articulated objects. The system has a modeler of objects that consists of joints and segments. The animator interactively positions the articulated object in its stick, control vertex, or rectangular prism representation and previews the motion in real time. Then the data representing the motion and the models is sent to a multicomputer [iPSC/2 Hypercube (Intel)]. The frames are rendered in parallel, exploiting the coherence bet...
