DescriptionIn this paper, we introduce a novel method for intelligently resizing a wide range of volumetric data including fluids. Fluid carving, the technique we build upon, only supported particle-based liquid data, and because it was based on image-based techniques, it was constrained to rectangular boundaries. We address these limitations to allow a much more versatile method for volumetric post-processing. By enclosing a region of interest in our lattice structure, users can retarget regions of a volume with non-rectangular boundaries and non-axis-aligned motion. Our approach generalizes to images, videos, liquids, meshes, and even previously unexplored domains such as fire and smoke. We also present a seam computation method that is significantly faster than the previous approach while maintaining the same level of quality, thus making our method more viable for production settings where post-processing workflows are vital.
