Title (EN) COMPUTERGRAPHIC ANIMATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME D'ANIMATION INFOGRAPHIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) There is provided a system (10) and method for a computerized animation system comprising a series of images stored in a memory storage structure (12). These images are comprised of picture elements, and the memory storage structures (12, 14, 16, 18) comprise a plurality of bit planes, which are further divided into at least two storage structures. A first storage structure (22) is used for storing operator-modified image information in a vector representation, and a second storage structure (12) is used to store a faster representation of the operator-modified image information. The system (10) includes means to display multiple images from the second storage structure (12) to facilitate the creation of additional images.
(FR) Système (10) et procédé destinés à un système d'animation informatisé comprenant une série d'images stockées dans une structure de stockage en mémoire (12). Ces images se composent d'éléments d'image, et les structures de stockage en mémoire (12, 14, 16, 18) comprennent une pluralité de plans binaires, lesquels sont à nouveau divisés en au moins deux structures de stockage. On utilise une première structure de stockage (22) afin de stocker des informations d'image modifiées par un opérateur dans une représentation vectorielle, et l'on utilise une seconde structure de stockage (12) afin de stocker une représentation plus rapide des informations d'image modifiées par un opérateur. Le système (10) comprend un moyen destiné à afficher des images multiples à partir de la seconde structure de stockage (12), afin de faciliter la création d'images supplémentaires.
