Source code information


The output format is .obj mesh files, can be read by many open source software. The authors provide a viewer as a  houdini plugin that can be used with the non-commercial version of houdini and runs smoothly. I was able to reproduce grid deformations similar to the ones in the paper, but not on meshes.
