Abstract
We present an interactive system for placing emphasis in stylized renderings of 3D models. The artist chooses a camera position, an area of interest, and a rendering style for the scene. The system then automatically renders the scene with emphasis in the area of interest, an effect we call "stylized focus." Stylized focus draws the viewer s gaze to the emphasized area, through local variations in shading effects such as color saturation and contrast as well as line qualities such as texture and density. We introduce a novel algorithm for local control of line density that exhibits a degree of temporal coherence suitable for animation. Animating the area of emphasis produces an effect we call the "stylized focus pull." Finally, an eye-tracking experiment verifies that the emphasis does indeed draw the viewer s gaze to the area of interest.
