    Deformation Transfer based on Stretchiness Ratio



    Recent work for deformation transfer is almost based on the deformation gradient framework [Sumner and Popović 2004], which deforms a target mesh by transferring local affine transformation in an optimization framework. We aim to explore a coordinate-invariant quantity for deformation transfer. What we propose here is to achieve deformation by transferring stretchiness ratio between the source meshes to the target.
