Research Projects
Title:Vector Graphics and Texturing
Description:Ultra-high-definition displays are available on the market, and vector graphics are possible solutions to describe various multimedia contents in versatile applications because of its compactness and scalability. Therefore, this project focuses on proposing a new data structure and vector algorithm to preserve complex details of arbitrary images and maintain interactive editing and manipulation abilities. Furthermore, high resolution textures are determinant for high rendering quality in gaming and movie industries, but burdens in memory usage, data transmission bandwidth, and rendering efficiency. Therefore, it is desirable to shade 3D objects with vector images such as Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) for compactness and resolution independence. We also focus on applying the vector image on rendering 3D objects.

Title:Stereoscopic 3D Tools for Animation
Description:Stereoscopic 3D (S3D) movies and animations have become more and more popular after the appearance of Avatar. However, it is a necessary but challenging task for creative producers to have an idea how the target audience might perceive when watching a stereoscopic film in a cinema during production and setting stereoscopic parameter is a time-consuming job and relies on animator's experience. This project focuses on providing a visualization tool to provide indication of possible stereoscopic perception and to accelerate the S3D parameter setting process. Stereoscopic 3D animation become popular after the enter of Avatar. However,

Title:Non-photorealistic Chinese Painting Animation
Description:Chinese ink paintings are pervasive in Asia and some art departments in Europe, and the Americas are offering classes to teach this unique style of paintings. Historically, scholars with accomplishments in politics, literature and science learned this art, and their products depict beauty and harmony of nature through brush strokes that shape and move objects such as water. In still paintings, special techniques are employed to deliver the endless spirit and flowing sense of water, yet dynamic water movement can enhance the effect dramatically. There have been several recent developments to augment traditional static paintings with moving objects. For example, the movie titled "Moving of the Riverside Scene at Chingming Festival" received positive reviews when shown at WorldExpo 2010 (Shanghai, China). In the movie, animated characters and dynamic objects (e.g., rivers) are seamlessly blended into famous classical Chinese paintings. Those animations bring the original static painting to life. This project focuses on how to animate elements in the Chinese paintings.
