In this paper we present ELASTIFACE, a simple and versatile method for establishing correspondence between textured face models, either for the construction of a blend-shape facial rig or for the exploration of new characters by morphing between a set of input models. While there exists a wide variety of approaches for inter-surface mapping and mesh morphing, most techniques are not suitable for our application: They either require the insertion of additional vertices, are limited to topological planes or spheres, are restricted to near-isometric input meshes, and/or are algorithmically and computationally involved. In contrast, our method extends linear non-rigid registration techniques to allow for strongly varying input geometries. It is geometrically intuitive, simple to implement, computationally efficient, and robustly handles highly non-isometric input models. In order to match the requirements of other applications, such as recent perception studies, we further extend our geometric matching to the matching of input textures and morphing of geometries and rendering styles.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
