SILHOUETTE DETECTION FOR ADAPTIVE POLYGONAL MESH SIMPLIFICATION USING DISTANCE TRANSFORMS

Susana Mata, Luis Pastor, Angel Rodríguez

Abstract

Distance Transforms have proven to be useful for many image processing applications. Nevertheless, they have only recently started to be used in computer graphics environments. The goal of this paper is to propose a new technique based on Distance Transforms for detecting mesh elements which are close to the objects’ external contour (from a given point of view), and using this information for weighting the approximation error which will be tolerated during the mesh simplification process.
