  • Enhanced Texture‐Based Terrain Synthesis on Graphics Hardware 

    Tasse, F. P.; Gain, J.; Marais, P. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Curvilinear features extracted from a 2D user‐sketched feature map have been used successfully to constraint a patch-based texture synthesis of real landscapes. This map-based user interface does not give fine control over ...
  • Local Poisson SPH For Viscous Incompressible Fluids 

    He, Xiaowei; Liu, Ning; Li, Sheng; Wang, Hongan; Wang, Guoping (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Enforcing fluid incompressibility is one of the time‐consuming aspects in SPH. In this paper, we present a local Poisson SPH (LPSPH) method to solve incompressibility for particle based fluid simulation. Considering the ...
  • Adaptive Compression of Texture Pyramids 

    Andujar, C. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    High-quality texture minification techniques, including trilinear and anisotropic filtering, require texture data to be arranged into a collection of pre-filtered texture maps called mipmaps. In this paper, we present a ...
  • Multi‐Class Anisotropic Electrostatic Halftoning 

    Schmaltz, C.; Gwosdek, P.; Weickert, J. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Electrostatic halftoning, a sampling algorithm based on electrostatic principles, is among the leading methods for stippling, dithering and sampling. However, this approach is only applicable for a single class of dots ...
  • Improving Data Locality for Efficient In‐Core Path Tracing 

    Bikker, J. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    In this paper, we investigate the efficiency of ray queries on the CPU in the context of path tracing, where ray distributions are mostly random. We show that existing schemes that exploit data locality to improve ray ...
  • Selecting Coherent and Relevant Plots in Large Scatterplot Matrices 

    Lehmann, Dirk J.; Albuquerque, Georgia; Eisemann, Martin; Magnor, Marcus; Theisel, Holger (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The scatterplot matrix (SPLOM) is a well‐established technique to visually explore high‐dimensional data sets. It is characterized by the number of scatterplots (plots) of which it consists of. Unfortunately, this number ...
  • Real‐Time Fluid Effects on Surfaces using the Closest Point Method 

    Auer, S.; Macdonald, C. B.; Treib, M.; Schneider, J.; Westermann, R. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The Closest Point Method (CPM) is a method for numerically solving partial differential equations (PDEs) on arbitrary surfaces, independent of the existence of a surface parametrization. The CPM uses a closest point ...
  • In at the Deep End: An Activity-Led Introduction to First Year Creative Computing 

    Anderson, E. F.; Peters, C. E.; Halloran, J.; Every, P.; Shuttleworth, J.; Liarokapis, F.; Lane, R.; Richards, M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Misconceptions about the nature of the computing disciplines pose a serious problem to university faculties that offer computing degrees, as students enrolling on their programmes may come to realise that their expectations ...
  • Perceptually Optimized Coded Apertures for Defocus Deblurring 

    Masia, Belen; Presa, Lara; Corrales, Adrian; Gutierrez, Diego (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The field of computational photography, and in particular the design and implementation of coded apertures, has yielded impressive results in the last years. In this paper we introduce perceptually optimized coded apertures ...
  • Feature-Preserving Displacement Mapping With Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Tessellation 

    Jang, Hanyoung; Han, JungHyun (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Displacement mapping reconstructs a high‐frequency surface by adding geometric details encoded in the displacement map to the coarse base surface. In the context of hardware tessellation supported by GPUs, this paper aims ...
  • Efficiently Simulating the Bokeh of Polygonal Apertures in a Post‐Process Depth of Field Shader 

    McIntosh, L.; Riecke, B. E.; DiPaola, S. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    The effect of aperture shape on an image, known in photography as ‘bokeh’, is an important characteristic of depth of field in real‐world cameras. However, most real‐time depth of field techniques produce Gaussian bokeh ...
  • Cultural Heritage Predictive Rendering 

    Happa, Jassim; Bashford-Rogers, Tom; Wilkie, Alexander; Artusi, Alessandro; Debattista, Kurt; Chalmers, Alan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    High‐fidelity rendering can be used to investigate Cultural Heritage (CH) sites in a scientifically rigorous manner. However, a high degree of realism in the reconstruction of a CH site can be misleading insofar as it can ...
  • A Significance Cache for Accelerating Global Illumination 

    Bashford-Rogers, Thomas; Debattista, Kurt; Chalmers, Alan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    Rendering using physically based methods requires substantial computational resources. Most methods that are physically based use straightforward techniques that may excessively compute certain types of light transport, ...
  • Parallel Surface Reconstruction for Particle-Based Fluids 

    Akinci, G.; Ihmsen, M.; Akinci, N.; Teschner, M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
    This paper presents a novel method that improves the efficiency of high‐quality surface reconstructions for particle-based fluids using Marching Cubes. By constructing the scalar field only in a narrow band around the ...
