NRSfM using Local Rigidity

| April 2, 2014

Abstract We show that typical nonrigid structure can often be approximated well as locally rigid sub-structures in time and space. Specifically, we assume that: 1) the structure can be approximated as rigid in a short local time window and 2) some point- pairs stay relatively rigid in space, maintaining a fixed distance between them during […]

3D Metric Rectification using Angle Regularity

| April 2, 2014

Abstract We propose Automatic Metric Rectification of projectively distorted 3D structures for man-made scenes using Angle Regularity. Man-made scenes, such as buildings, are characterized by a profusion of mutually orthogonal planes and lines. Assuming the availability of planar segmentation, we search for the rectifying 3D homography  which maximizes the number of orthogonal plane-pairs in the […]

Ph.D. Thesis Defense: Ijaz Akhter

| November 19, 2012

Tuesday 20 Nov, 2012 at 5:50 pm in Smart Room 9-105 SSE. Abstract A variety of dynamic objects, such as faces, bodies, and cloth, are represented in computer vision and computer graphics as a collection of moving spatial landmarks. A number of tasks are performed on this type of data such as character animation, motion […]

Shape from Angle Regularity – Project Page

| October 7, 2012

Urban architecture is characterized by a profusion of straight lines that meet orthogonally. This simple observation leads to a flexible definition of the man-made world and the distortion in these regular angles serves as a new shape-from-X cue. This project formulates the idea and explores its applications in various scenarios in detail. Publications Some initial results […]

Press Release on Carnegie Mellon News

| August 21, 2012

Our joint research project with Iain Matthews at Disney Research Pittsburgh and Yaser Sheikh and Tomas Simon at Carnegie Mellon University is covered by Carnegie Mellon News. To quote from the press release: Computer graphic artists who produce computer-animated movies and games spend much time creating subtle movements such as expressions on faces, gesticulations on […]

Ijaz Akhter, Tomas Simon, Sohaib Khan, Iain Matthews, Yaser Sheikh Abstract A variety of dynamic objects, such as faces, bodies, and cloth, are represented in computer graphics as a collection of moving spatial landmarks. Spatiotemporal data is inherent in a number of graphics applications including animation, simulation, and object and camera tracking. The principal modes […]
