Abstract : Interactive Stylization of Moving Imagery with temporal coherence
Manually creating artwork is a creative but painstaking process. For applications like advertisement, games and video animation, there is an opportunity to use non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) techniques to alleviate the labor of creating stylized imagery. In such applications, however, both interactivity and flexibility are crucial for supporting creative control. Moreover, for stylization of moving imagery an additional challenge lies in maintaining temporal coherence. Resulting animation and video sequences should be support continuity when applying stylization to avoid annoying artifacts such as flickering.
In this talk, I present two stylization systems that interact with the artists to generate imagery for different artistic styles. By providing input (still images, video or 3D models), painting sample textures and experimenting with system parameters, the artists can produce stylized and coherent rendering results immediately.
The first project focuses on painting surfaces in the scene with visible marks. We apply stroke-based techniques to emulate the layer-by-layer painting process. Temporal coherence is maintained by modeling strokes as independent moving particles guided by optical flow. We describe an algorithm that is executed entirely on GPU to produce high quality results at interactive rates.
The second project focuses on the generation of line drawings from 3D models. Important lines of the input are extracted and modeled as snakes - active contours tracking the visible boundaries in the scene. We stylize the active contours by fitting different types of curves, including straight line segments, cubic splines and clothoids. Additional stylization is introduced by adding small-scale synthesized offsets with respect to the brush path, and by varying the width of the brush strokes at different contour samples.
