Zeta: a Resolution Modeling System
Zeta is a prototypal Resolution Modeling system,
implemented by the Visual
Computer Group of CNUCE/IEI - C.N.R. at Pisa.
Zeta supports the construction of variable resolution models
out of a multiresolution mesh represented adopting the hypertriangulation
Our Resolution Modeling approach and the Zeta system are presented
in detail in the paper: P. Cignoni, C. Montani, C.
Rocchini, R. Scopigno, Zeta: a Resolution Modeling system, GMIP:
Graphical Models and Image Processing, vol.60(5), September 1998, pp.305-329.
efficient extraction of fixed
resolution meshes out of the multi-res model;
unified and interactive management
of selective refinements or simplification;
easy composition of the
selective ref./simpl. actions;
guaranteed C0 continuity (i.e. no
cracks) of the variable resolution mesh produced;
shape editing capabilities, integrated with the multiresolution representation;
interactive response times.
The Resolution Modeling prototype (rel
1.0) is available
on the web (SGI executables only for IRIX 6.2).
Users are kindly requested to send comments, acknoledgements of possible
bugs, etc. to: R.Scopigno@cnuce.cnr.it

Most of the models shown in the following slides have been downloaded from the Web. We thank all
the people who made them available.
