    Feature-Based Texture Stretch Compensation for 3D Meshes



    One subtle artifact which still often reveals the synthetic nature of a digital creature on screen is the stretching of a supposedly rigid feature, such as a dinosaur scale or a callus, under deformation. We introduce a technique which attempts to preserve the shape of user-defined features when a 3D mesh deforms. Our approach makes no restriction on the type of features or their distribution—it can handle features of very high resolution and it is designed to fit in a texture-painting driven pipeline.
