Fitting a mesh between curves / Bilinear interpolation?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to fit a 2d mesh between 4 curves. Pretty much what the skin SOP does but potentially with a custom mesh.


vector bbox = relbbox(0, v@P);

function vector blerp(vector a, b, c, d; float x, y){
    vector lr = a * (1.0 - x) + b * (x);
    vector tb = c * (1.0 - y) + d * (y);
    return 0.5 * (lr + tb);

vector p0 = primuv(1, 'P', 0, bbox.z);
vector p1 = primuv(1, 'P', 1, bbox.x);
vector p2 = primuv(1, 'P', 2, bbox.z);
vector p3 = primuv(1, 'P', 3, bbox.x);

v@P = blerp(p0, p2, p1, p3, bbox.x, bbox.z);

How can I smoothly interpolate the point positions so the borders actually touch the curves?

Broken down into more comprehensible steps:

vector uv = relbbox(0, v@P);

vector crv_0 = primuv(1, 'P', 0, uv.z);
vector crv_1 = primuv(1, 'P', 1, uv.x);
vector crv_2 = primuv(1, 'P', 2, uv.z);
vector crv_3 = primuv(1, 'P', 3, uv.x);

vector start_0 = primuv(1, 'P', 0, 0);
vector start_2 = primuv(1, 'P', 2, 0);
vector end_0   = primuv(1, 'P', 0, 1);
vector end_2   = primuv(1, 'P', 2, 1);

vector ipol = lerp(crv_0, crv_2, uv.x);
ipol       += lerp(crv_1, crv_3, uv.z);

vector fit_0 = lerp(start_0, end_0, uv.z);
vector fit_2 = lerp(start_2, end_2, uv.z);

v@P = ipol - lerp(fit_0, fit_2, uv.x);
