Average Images: We also wanted to explore the task of synthesizing non-photorealistic images, or in the case, paintings. We believed one of the major issues the networks in the techniques we were using was that because the sketches are very simple, especially in comparison to a typical image, they contain a lot less dimension and content. The sketches are made of solid black lines against a white canvas with no shading involved. Thus, we propose the use of average images.
This course covers actual problems and research topics in the field of image synthesis and rendering techniques, including raytracing, radiosity and global illumination methods, image- and video-based rendering, video cutout techniques and 3D video.
