This paper presents a framework for construction of animated models from captured surface shape of real objects. Algorithms are introduced to transform the captured surface shape into a layered model. The layered model comprises an articulation structure, generic control model and a displacement map to represent the high-resolution surface detail. Novel methods are presented for automatic control model generation, shape constrained fitting and displacement mapping of the captured data. Results are demonstrated for surface shape captured using both multiple view images and active surface measurement. The framework enables rapid transformation of captured data into a structured representation suitable for realistic animation.
