Animated non-photorealistic rendering in multiple styles


by T-Y Chen, R Klette
Abstract:
This paper presents an algorithm and its applications for artistic rendering of recorded video data following ideas of nonphotorealistic rendering. The proposed algorithm does not only work on a variety of artistic rendering styles for static photography but it can also be applied to the creation of artistic videos. Cartoon-like and comic-like styles are the two artistic styles considered in this paper. For creating successfully an artistic video, three key challenges are addressed: temporal (or colour) consistency, stylistic flexibility, and scalability. Our work on addressing these challenges started with collecting samples of image and video data. Based on experimental results, we designed a method for video-based non-photorealistic rendering from those input data, either in cartoon-like or in comics-like style. The paper demonstrates the benefit of the designed video-based rendering framework by comparing its results with results obtained from existing Android apps.
