Synthesizing Animatable Body Models with Parameterized Shape Modifications

Seo, H. and Cordier, F. and Magnenat-Thalmann, N.


Abstract: Based on an existing modeller that can generate realistic and controllable whole-body models, we introduce our modifier synthesizer for obtaining higher level of manipulations of body models by using parameters such as fat percentage and hip-to-waist ratio. Users are assisted in automatically modifying an existing model by controlling the parameters provided. On any synthesized model, the underlying bone and skin structure is properly adjusted, so that the model remains completely animatable using the underlying skeleton. Based on statistical analysis of data models, we demonstrate the use of body attributes as parameters in controlling the shape modification of the body models while maintaining the distinctiveness of the individual as much as possible.
