UE Curve and surface reconstruction

Description: Interpolating a set of discrete samples (points/normals/tangents/etc) is a common task in computer graphics. For instance, these techniques can be used to reconstruct a surface from a point cloud, to edit/restore images or to interpolate motion capture data. This lecture presents useful methods to interpolate and approximate discrete data, including:

  • interpolation/approximation from organized/parametrized data
  • explicit reconstruction from scattered data (Delaunay triangulation, crust,…)
  • implicit surface reconstruction (MLS, marching cube,…)
