Global support factors of PCA lead to implausible body shapes, whereas the local support factors of our method give more realistic results. See our accompanying video for animated results. Abstract Representing 3D shape deformations by highdimensional linear models has many applications in computer vision and medical imaging. Commonly, using Principal Components Analysis a

However, the resulting factors (the most dominant eigenvectors of the covariance matrix) have global support, i.e. changing the coefficient of a single factor deforms the entire shape. Based on matrix factorisation with sparsity and graph-based regularisation terms, we present a method to obtain deformation factors with local support. The benefits include better flexibility and interpretability as well as the possibility of interactively deforming shapes locally. We demonstrate that for brain shapes our method outperforms the state of the art in local support models with respect to generalisation and sparse reconstruction, whereas for body shapes our method gives more realistic deformations.
