The concept of multiresolution analysis applied to irregular meshes has become more and more important. Previous contributions proposed a variety of methods using simplification and/or subdivision algorithms to build a mesh pyramid. In this paper, we propose a multiresolution analysis framework for irregular meshes with attributes. Our framework is based on simplification and subdivision algorithms to build a mesh pyramid. We introduce a surface relaxation operator that allows to build a non-uniform subdivision for a low computational cost. Furthermore, we generalize the relaxation operator to attributes such as color, texture, temperature, etc. The attribute analysis gives more information on the analysed models allowing more complete processing. We show the efficiency of our framework through a number of applications including filtering, denoising and adaptive simplification.
