Implicit Skinning

Thesis Implicit Skinning


Real time skinning techniques have a critical role in production of animated characters. Unfortunately, the most popular algorithms often fail in producing good skin deformations. Implicit skinning is a corrective methodology for character skinning able to generate believable skin deformation automatically, while guaranteeing real-time feedback to the artist. In this report is presented a study and an implementation of the implicit skinning algorithm.
