Editing RGBNs
Luiz Velho | Thiago, Pereira
Keywords: Normal Maps
A color image with an associated normal stored for each pixel is a useful datatype. It improves on images since geometry information is also present while at the same time it avoids all the complexity present in a 3D mesh. In this report, we investigate editing these enhanced images. Local shape deformation operators are presented. Global operators are developed using texture synthesis methods. We also propose a new filtering technique.
