Editing of a pose propagates to all subsequent poses.


In computer graphics, animation compression is essential for efficient storage, streaming and reproduction of animated meshes. Previous work has presented efficient techniques for compression using skinning transformations to derive the animated mesh from a reference pose. We present a pose-to-pose approach to skinning animated meshes by observing that only small deformation variations will normally occur between consecutive poses. The transformations are applied so that a new pose is derived by deforming the geometry of the previous pose, thus maintaining temporal coherence in the parameter space, reducing approximation error and facilitating forward propagated editing of arbitrary poses.
