Transductive segmentation of textured meshes
This paper addresses the problem of segmenting a textured mesh into objects or object classes, consistently with user-supplied seeds. We view this task as transductive learning and use the flexibility of kernel-based weights to incorporate a various number of diverse features. Our method combines a Laplacian graph regularizer that enforces spatial coherence in label propagation and an SVM classifier that ensures dissemination of the seeds characteristics. Our interactive framework allows to easily specify classes seeds with sketches drawn on the mesh and potentially refine the segmentation. We obtain qualitatively good segmentations on several architectural scenes and show the applicability of our method to outliers removing.
