13. Experimental Analysis of Qem Based Mesh Simplification Techniques


13.   Experimental Analysis of Qem Based Mesh Simplification Techniques

Abstract—In this research study, effects of mesh simplification on visual quality are examined by using quadric edge collapse decimation method. In this context, we analyze simplifications of various objects by investigating the Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR) values, difference images, and compression ratios. Experiments are performed in MeshLab environment and it is shown that when model is chosen as complex, simplification error between reference and simplified models increases much more in comparison with simpler models. At the same time, if we use high compression ratio, higher simplification error is reached. It could be concluded that compression ratio affects the error linearly.

Keywords—mesh simplification; quadric error metrics; QEM; visual quality analysis; quadric edge collapse decimation

I. Introduction

Various applications in computer graphics need complex and detailed models for providing reality. For this reason, models are captured with high resolution but complexity of the model causes an increase in the computational cost. To solve this issue, producing simpler forms of such models has gained great importance. In this target, studies [1, 2, 3, 4] such as surface simplification and multiresolution modeling, which are creating the models with sufficient levels of details for rendering applications, have achieved popularity. Those studies are interested in simplifying surfaces by taking the polygonal model as input and obtaining a simplified model in the end....
