Creating Fluid Animation from a Single Image using Video Database

  • Published in Computer Graphics Forum 2011
  • Authors: Makoto Okabe, Ken Anjyo, Rikio Onai
  • Basic Idea
    • Create database of one type of fluid (fire, smoke, water)
    • Database is composed of (average image + differences) of video patches and indexed with visual words (SIFT).
    • Given a new image of a fluid, cut it up into pieces.
    • For each piece, find a video from the database. Combine the differences from the database with the image to form an animation. Lots of small details in the paper...
    • User can draw a flow field and apply a mask. The flow field influences which video is selected from the database.

Animating Animal Motion from Still

  • Siggraph Asia 2008
  • Authors: Xuemiao Xu, Liang Wan, Xiaopei Liu, Tien-Tsin Wong, Liansheng Wang, Chi-Sing Leung
  • Basic Idea
    • Given a photo with multiple of the same animal
    • Crop each animal to get a set of "motion snapshots"
    • Using some structural similarity measures, order the motion snapshots to create a motion cycle
    • Do consistency refinement to morph between snapshots.
