Stylized rendering techniques for scalable real-time 3D animation
Researchers in nonphotorealistic rendering (NPR) have investigated a variety of techniques to simulate the styles of artists. Recent work has resulted in methods for pen-and-ink illustration, pencil sketching, watercolor, engraving, and silhouette edge rendering. This paper presents real-time methods to emulate cartoon styles. We also present variations on a texture mapping technique to achieve real-time pencil sketching. We demonstrate our method of inking silhouettes, material and mesh boundaries, and crease edges. In addition, we present techniques for emphasizing motion of cartoon objects by introducing geometry into the cartoon scene. The rendering system is integrated with an animation system and a runtime multiresolution mesh (MRM) system to achieve scalability, ensuring real-time performance on any platform. Such solutions allow us to take advantage of evolving hardware in order to make nonphotorealistic animation and rendering achievable on low- and high-end consumer platform...
