# Deformable Templates

## Basic Deformations, Basic Templates

In this demo, you have control over what to use as the deformable template by choosing which points in the octagon you would like to deform. Note, however, that while many selections (try, for example, selecting 1,3,5,7) can produce very neat images, such deformations produce topologically undesirable shapes of the sort that would not be useful when doing the kind of shape analysis that we aim to do.

Deform these points:
1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8:

Rotate:
Scale:

$$\theta$$: 0 $$\rho$$: 1
