Template-based Monocular 3D Shape Recovery using Laplacian Meshes

We show that by extending the Laplacian formalism, which was first introduced in the Graphics community to regularize 3D meshes, we can turn the monocular 3D shape reconstruction of a deformable surface given correspondences with a reference image into a well-posed problem. Our approach allows us to reduce the dimensionality of the surface reconstruction problem without sacrificing accuracy, thus allowing for real-time implementations.
