I am reading the paper Animated Mesh Approximation With Sphere-Meshes . The input of the algorithm mentioned in the paper is an animated surface mesh, but I do not know what an animated surface mesh is. I just learn a little about surface mesh, which may be an .off file on the disk.

A snapshot from the paper.

What is an animated surface mesh? What kind of file format do animated surface meshes have on the disk?

I have got a good answer to this question from https://www.zhihu.com/question/50173048?from=profile_question_card.

The paper says:

Problem statement. We aim at approximating a mesh animation with F frames, (meaning F different triangles meshes having the same connectivity) with an animated sphere-mesh (a mesh where each vertex is associated with a time-varying sphere).

So the animated surface mesh is a mesh animation with F frames.Every frame is a mesh with same connectivity.

And the horse models in the paper can be got from here: Deformation Transfer for Triangle Meshes -- Data. And other models (eg: Capoeira,Samba) in the paper can be got from http[:]//people.csail.mit.edu/drdaniel/mesh_animation/.

Thanks Xia Qing again.
