Abstract: Complex meshes tend to have intricate, detailed silhouettes. This paper proposes two algorithms for extracting a simpler, approximate silhouette from a high-resolution model. Our methods preserve the important features of the silhouette by using the silhouette of a coarser, simplified mesh as a guide. Our simple silhouettes have significantly fewer edges than the original silhouette, while still preserving its appearance.
