Hart, David Augustus: Toward Greater Artistic Control for Interactive Evolution of Images and Animation. In: EvoMUSART 2007, S. 527-536.



We present several practical improvements to the interactive evolution of 2D images, some of which are also applicable to more general genetic programming problems. We introduce tree alignments to improve the animation of evolved images when using genetic cross dissolves. The goal of these improvements is to strengthen the interactive evolution toolset and give the artist greater control and expressive power.
