  • Digital Painting: facing the problem 

    Walker, James Faure (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This will be an illustrated presentation. It will show how digital techniques give the painter both new opportunities and a fresh set of problems. Is this part of the New Media story, or just painting turning a corner?
  • Animating Brachiation 

    Zhang, Zheng; Wong, Kok Cheong (Eurographics Association, 1999)

  • Edinburgh: 200 years of heritage through image-based virtual environments 

    Wright, Mark W.; Watson, Gordon; Dunlop, Gair; Middleton, Roy (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Heritage is an important application of virtual environments. The key role of virtual environments in this sector is to provide a spatial context for historical records, artifacts and places. This spatial context makes the ...
  • Adaptive Refinements in Subdivision Surfaces? 

    Xu, Zheng; Kondo, Kunio (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    One problem in subdivision surfaces is the number of meshes grows quickly after every subdivision step. The number of meshes of the subdivision surface is usually huge and the scheme is difficult to manipulate. In this ...
  • Contour Extraction of Watermarks in Old Manuscripts 

    Wenger, Emanuel; Karnaukhov, Victor N.; Haidinger, Alois (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    The comparison of watermarks in old paper is the major technique for dating undated medieval manuscripts. The extraction of watermarks as contours is the crucial task in digitalization and building a watermark database. ...
  • Design or art? Art or design? 

    Watson, K. (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Exploring the similarities and the differences between artists and designers New technology has led to similarities in the work created by fine artists and designers who use computers. In the UK, design is still looked ...
  • Visual Learning with Computer Art Graphics Artwork Description 

    Ursyn, Anna (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    In my work, I use the computer on different levels. For my two-dimensional works, I have been programing in Fortran IV then Fortran 77 using Cyber, then VAX mainframes and Interactive Graphic Library (IGL). I have been ...
  • The Aurora 

    Sugano, Yoshinori; Masuda, Eiko (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    As you peek into Japans history of fine arts, a traditional way of expressing pictures can be found. It all started from printing scrolls way back in the 12th century and now turned into a medium as known as manga. Today ...
  • Emotion-based, Multi-person Interactive Theatre - Romeo and Juliet in Hades 

    Tosa, Naoko; Nakatsu, Ryohei (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Now a days many Interactive Theater research is appeared[1][2][3][4]. We have developed an emotion- based interactive theater system. The characteristic is the use of Interactive Computer Graphics technology and the ...
  • 3-D Spatial Skills--A Key to the Effective Use of Computer Graphics Software? 

    Sorby, S.A. (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Development and evaluation of 3-D spatial visualization skills is discussed. Correlations between measured spatial skills and ability to effectively use computer graphics software are analyzed and strategies to improve 3-D ...
  • On the Opera Theatre Simulation 

    Alberti, Maria A.; Trapani, Paola (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    In this paper we develop some considerations on multimedia applications, starting from the experience gained by implementing a multimedia representation of an opera theatre: namely the Teatro alla Scala di Milano. After a ...
  • Registration methods for harmonious integration of real worlds and computer generated objects 

    Simon, G.; Lepetit, V.; Berger, M.-O. (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This page is an extension of our paper entitled "Registration methods for harmonious integration of real and computer generated objects". We focus in this paper on the problem of adding computer-generated objects in video ...
  • Improving 3-D Spatial Visualization Skills with Multimedia Software 

    Sorby, S. A.; Baartmans, B. J.; Wysocki, A. F. (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Development and evaluation of 3-D spatial visualization skills is discussed. Strategies for improving spatial skills are presented and multimedia software being developed by the authors is described. Initial assessment ...
  • Visible Surface Reconstruction with Accurate Localization of Object Boundaries 

    March, Riccardo; Pedersini, Federico (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    An important problem in 3D reconstruction from multiple perspective views is the accurate recovery of surfaces near the discontinuities (object boundaries and creases). A common limitation of many techniques based on ...
  • Multidimensional Shape Modeling for Animation 

    Pasko, Alexander; Adzhiev, Valery; Fausett, Eric (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    An approach is proposed for generating animation sequences from functionally defined multidimensional shapes. An animation sequence can be considered as a particular case of a multimedia object and can be described using ...
  • On Time-Varying Flow Fields: a streakline-based visualization method 

    Sanna, Andrea; Montrucchio, Bartolomeo; Arina, Renzo (Eurographics Association, 1999)
    The visualization of unsteady flows is an attractive field of research and texture-based techniques seem to provide satisfactory results. In this paper we propose a texture-based method which follows streaklines in order ...
  • CharToon: a system to animate 2D cartoons faces 

    ten Hagen, Paul; Noot, Han; Ruttkay, Zsofia (Eurographics Association, 1999)
