Expressive modelling of complex, natural scenes

Speaker:  Marie-Paule Cani – Paris Saclay, France
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design


While they made design for fabrication more generally accessible, the conceptual tools used in expressive 3D modelling - eg. sketching, sculpting and geometry transfer interfaces) are also extremely promising for the design of full, animated natural scenes. In these applications, the number of features and the consistency constraints they need  to maintain - coming from physical laws, but also from geology or botanic, as well as the interaction between elements of different nature such as terrains with rivers and vegetation, make direct creation extremely tedious and difficult. This talks explores the combination of models embedding prior knowledge with examples and gesture-based control, to create large, controllable landscapes populated with consistent rivers and ecosystems.
