SKETCH: An Interface for Sketching 3D Scenes
Sketching communicates ideas rapidly through approximate visual images with low overhead (pencil and paper), no need for precision or specialized knowledge, and ease of low-level ...

A Cellular Texture Basis Function
Solid texturing is a powerful way to add detail to the surface of rendered objects. Perlin's "noise" is a 3D basis function used in some of the most dramatic and us...

Rendering Parametric Surfaces in Pen and Ink
This paper presents new algorithms and techniques for rendering parametric free-form surfaces in pen and ink. In particular, we introduce the idea of "controlled-density hatc...

Image-Guided Streamline Placement
Accurate control of streamline density is key to producing several effective forms of visualization of 2-dimensional vector fields. We introduce a technique that uses an energy fu...

Blue Screen Matting
A classical problem of imaging--the matting problem--is separation of a non-rectangular foreground image from a (usually) rectangular background image--for example, in a film fram...

Hierarchical Image Caching for Accelerated Walkthroughs of Complex Environments
We present a new method that utilizes path coherence to accelerate walkthroughs of geometrically complex static scenes. As a preprocessing step, our method constructs a BSP-tree t...

View Morphing
Image morphing techniques can generate compelling 2D transitions between images. However, differences in object pose or viewpoint often cause unnatural distortions in image morphs...

Technologies for Augmented Reality Systems: Realizing Ultrasound-Guided Needle Biopsies
We present a real-time stereoscopic video-see-through augmented reality (AR) system applied to the medical procedure known as ultrasound-guided needle biopsy of the breast. The AR...

Scale-Dependent Reproduction of Pen-and-Ink Illustrations
This paper describes a representation for pen-and-ink illustrations that allows the creation of high-fidelity illustrations at any scale or resolution. We represent a pen-and-ink ...
