Learning to Dress 3D People in Generative Clothing. Q Ma, J Yang, A Ranjan, S Pujades, G Pons-Moll, S Tang, MJ Black.

Date: June 2020. Source: 2020 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), Seattle, WA, USA. Abstract: Three-dimensional human body models are widely used in the analysis of human pose and motion. Existing models, however, are learned from minimally-clothed 3D scans and thus do not generalize to the complexity of dressed people in common…

Lumbar posture assessment with fabric strain sensors. LQ Vu, KH Kim, LJH Schulze, SL Rajulu.

Date: March 2020. Source: Computers in Biology and Medicine, Volume 118, 103624. Abstract: Astronauts are at risk for low back pain and injury during extravehicular activity because of the deconditioning of the lumbar region and biomechanical demands associated with wearing a spacesuit. To understand and mitigate injury risks, it is necessary to study the lumbar…

Assessing the Influence of Chin Asymmetry on Perceived Facial Esthetics With 3-Dimensional Images. T Dong, N Ye, L Yuan, S Wu, L Xia, B Fang.

Date: March 2020. Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. DOI: 10.1016/j.joms.2020.03.017. Objective: We used 3-dimensional (3D) images to assess the influence of chin asymmetry on perceived facial esthetics, investigate the cognitive boundaries of chin asymmetry among orthodontists, general dentists, and laypersons, and provide quantitative reference for clinical treatment. Materials and Methods: A 3D facial…

Three-Dimensional Facial Imaging for the Diagnosis of Complex Soft Tissue Secondary to Craniofacial Trauma. L Zou, S Holmes.

Date: March 2020. Source: Atlas of Operative Maxillofacial Trauma Surgery, pp 101-105, Springer, London. Abstract: Facial scanning is a relatively recent imaging modality that has been evolving over the past 30 years. It provides valid and reliable three-dimensional (3D) imaging. 3D facial images also provide objective quantifications of facial changes. Image capturing uses a noncontact…

Three-Dimensional Dynamic Analysis of the Facial Movement Symmetry of Skeletal Class III Patients With Facial Asymmetry. Z Xue; L Wu; TC Qiu.

Date: February 2020. Source: Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Volume 78, Issue 2, Pages 267-274. Objective: Dynamic asymmetry has not been as rigorously evaluated as static asymmetry for patients with skeletal deformity but could well be even more important. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the dynamic facial movement of Class…

Synthesizing Facial Photometries and Corresponding Geometries Using Generative Adversarial Networks. G Shamai, R Slossberg, R Kimmel.

Date: October 2019. Source: ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications, Article No.: 87 https://doi.org/10.1145/3337067. Abstract: Artificial data synthesis is currently a well-studied topic with useful applications in data science, computer vision, graphics, and many other fields. Generating realistic data is especially challenging, since human perception is highly sensitive to non-realistic appearance. In recent…

The development of a 3D body scan and composition database to assess body size perception in psychological research. N Maalin, SM Mohamed, RS Kramer, et al.

Date: October 2019. Source: 3DBODY.TECH 2019 – 10th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: Recently, there has been a shift towards the use of 3D scanning technology in body size perception research. Based on limitations of previous methodologies there is a need to develop and validate female…

Development of a 3D Body Database to Improve Measures of Perceptual Male Body Image Distortion. SM Mohamed, N Maalin, RS Kramer, A Irvine, PL Cornelissen, KL Ritchie, MJ Tovee.

Date: October 2019. Source: 3DBODY.TECH 2019 – 10th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: There are important limitations in the current methodological stimuli being used in perceptual body image research among men, including a reliance on unrealistic images, a lack of biometric validity, and little consideration of…

Synthesizing Coupled 3D Face Modalities by Trunk-Branch Generative Adversarial Networks. B Gecer, A Lattas, S Ploumpis, et al.

Date: September 2019. Source: Cornell University Library – arXiv.org, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. Abstract: Generating realistic 3D faces is of high importance for computer graphics and computer vision applications. Generally, research on 3D face generation revolves around linear statistical models of the facial surface. Nevertheless, these models cannot represent faithfully either the facial texture…
