An exploration of genetic programming for non-photorealistic animations
Ashkan Izadi and Vic Ciesielski: An exploration of genetic programming for non-photorealistic animations. 3rd IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Information Technology (ICCSIT 2010), Vol. 9, pp. 255-259, 9-11 July 2010.
In this paper we present a new technique for non photo-realistic rendering by using genetic programming. Our technique produces aesthetically pleasing animations in which a subject gradually emerges from a random collection of brushstrokes. We employ triangular brushstrokes with three different possibilities of strokes drawing on the canvas. The animations are evaluated by using a numerical measure of similarity to a target image and a qualitative evaluation of aesthetic characteristics by an artist. We provide many facilities to the artists to control the rendered images and create desirable animations.
