Rhône-Alpes Project: Dereve II
Participants : Florence Bertails, Antoine Bouthors, Marie-Paule Cani, Laurent Favreau, Fabrice Neyret, Lionel Reveret, Jamie Wither.
This regional project in the domain of Computer Graphics took place between July 2003 and July 2006. In the last year, the contributions of EVASION were:
Workpackage 1 Realistic modeling and animation of characters and natural scenes : systems for modeling clothing and animating human hair; a method for animating wild animals from images and videos.
Workpackage 3 Modeling and real-time rendering of natural scenaries : a method for rendering realistic clouds.
IMAG Project: MIDAS
Participants : François Faure, Matthieu Nesme, Laks Raghupathi.
We drive the MIDAS (Modèles Interactifs Déformables pour l'Aide à la Surgétique) project, which also involves laboratories TIMC and ICP, from 2005 to 2007. The goal of this project is to provide the biomechanics community with physically-based deformable models fast enough for use in per-operative planning, or in the context of trial-and-error parameter tuning where a large number of simulation are performed.
IMAG project: MEGA
Participants : Marie-Paule Cani, Laurent Favreau, Franck Hétroy, Lionel Revéret.
We also drive the MEGA (MEthodes Géométriques de décomposition et déformation de surfaces pour l'Animation 3D") project, involving the LIS laboratory (image processing) and the MGA team from the LMC laboratory (applied maths). This projects aims at developping a new approach to surface deformation for character animation, using new geometrical models and tools with strong mathematical basis.
