Augmented reality holds unique potential to provide a bridge between real-world activities and digital enhancements.

A texturing process applies the captured texture from a 2-D colored drawing to both the visible and occluded regions of a 3-D character in real time. Disney developed a deformable surface tracking method designed for colored drawings that uses a new outlier rejection algorithm for real-time tracking and surface deformation recovery.
