ABSTRACT
A geodesic distance-based approach synthesizes natural facial animations using radial basis function (RBF) interpolation. The approach consists of two parts: the geodesic distance calculation and the geodesic distance-based RBF interpolation. The method works in real time, which is important in computer games and online chatting.
