Image-based Clothes Animation for Virtual Fitting




We propose an image-based approach for virtual clothes fitting, in which a user moves freely in front of a virtual mirror (i.e., video screen) that displays the user wearing a superimposed virtual garment. The motions and deformations of the virtual garment are synthesized by tracking the user’s skeleton and utilizing corresponding video clips of the actual garment worn by a model. Our system overcomes challenges in generating a convincing garment animation. With our technique, we developed a real-time system using a Microsoft Kinect camera that demonstrates effective clothes fitting results with a variety of garment types.
