Errors are given as mean distances between the reconstructed points and their true location, divided by
the span of the true shape. Courtesy of V. Rabaud.
Of course, this measure cannot be directly computed, since it depends on the 3D shapes, which are
unknown. However, its infimum and supremum can be obtained from the measurement matrix

Therefore, the relations in set
can be used to define constraints in a Generalized Nonmetric Multi
Dimensional Scaling problem
Agarwal
et al.
[

] written as a semidefinite program (SDP). Solv
ing this SDP yields an estimate of the shape coefficients
c
in each frame. Given the shape coefficients,
the shape basis and rotations are then computed. Fig.

compares the reconstruction accuracy
of
Rabaud and Belongie
[
2009
] with other methods on the shark dataset. The reconstruction errors
are given as mean distances between the reconstructed points and their true location, divided by the
span of the true shape. Note that the method of
Rabaud and Belongie
[
2009
] converges quickly and
yields better accuracy than the other approaches.
While the zeroth order motion model and the shape repetition assumption are very helpful,
they both have their shortcomings. The former usually does not really apply to the true dynamics
of a deformable surface, and the latter requires having long enough sequences such that the same
shape appears several times. Furthermore, in the abovementioned works, temporal consistency was
not sufficient to fully constrain reconstruction. As a consequence, the resulting techniques had to
exploit additional geometric constraints, as described in Section
6.3
