Non-Photorealistic Images Synthesis

Supervisor(s): Dr. Wang W.( wenping@csis.hku.hk)

No of students:2

Prerequisite: None

Project Type: CS


The goal of traditional photorealistic image synthesis in computer graphics is to accurately simulate physical laws governing illumination in the computer model of a 3D scene. Images thus generated are hardly distinguishable from photos of real scenes.

In contrast to photorealistic technique, non-photorealistic rendering approach attempts to use simple line drawing to convey information about 3D scenes rendered. The non-photorealistic computer-generated images are easy to store, transmit, and display, and have proven to be more informative than photorealistic images for technical illustrations. The students will study and test different techniques in non-photorealistic image synthesis.
