 Abstract: Technologies for motion and performance capture of real actors have enabled the creation of realisticlooking virtual humans through detail and deformation transfer at the cost of extensive manual work and sophisticated in-studio marker-based systems. This thesis pushes the boundaries of performance capture by proposing automatic algorithms for robust 3D skeleton and detailed surface tracking in less constrained multi-view outdoor scenarios. Contributions include new multi-layered human body representations designed for effective model-based time-consistent reconstruction in complex dynamic environments with varying illumination, from a set of vision cameras. We design dense surface refinement approaches to enable smooth silhouette-free model-to-image alignment, as well as coarse-to-fine tracking techniques to enable joint estimation of skeleton motion and finescale surface deformations in complicated scenarios. High-quality results attained on challenging application scenarios confirm the contributions and show great potential for the automatic creation of personalized 3D virtual humans.
