I’ve just started watching the Gilbert Strang MIT Courseware on iTunes, and highly recommend it – after watching it a light bulb went off in my head. Daniel Pook Kolb’s Blendshape system is very very impressive – but I did’nt and still dont understand it fully.
Thinking out loud here I thought that it might be essentially a form of finding out the ‘unknown’ in a linear combination of an nth dimensional space as the corrective of the combining shapes. For example the unknown of :
x[2,3] + y [4,5] = [6,7] would be [-1, 2] ( its hard to show as i’m not using LaTex atm)
Before any corrective is used the ‘unknown’ is [0,0], this would be synomanous to adding two blendshapes together without any corrective.
