Title (EN) IMAGE SYNTHESIS AND PROCESSING
(FR) SYNTHESE ET TRAITEMENT D'IMAGES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of computer painting comprising defining the path of a brush stroke by parametric curve control data; defining and interactively editing the attributes (for example, stroke width; stroke transparency and stroke colour) at predetermined points along the path, using a supervisory display of the path and the points thereon; and generating the intervening points by interpolation, for storage in a frame store and subsequent reproduction as an image of the brush stroke.
(FR) Procédé de coloriage sur ordinateur consistant à définir le parcours d'un trait de pinceau à l'aide de données de commande de courbes paramétriques; à définir et à corriger de manière interactive les caractéristiques (par exemple: la largeur du trait, sa transparence et sa couleur) à des points prédéterminés sur ledit parcours, à l'aide d'un affichage de contrôle du parcours et desdits points prédéterminés; et à créer par interpolation les points intercalaires et les stocker dans une mémoire d'images pour en permettre la reproduction ultérieure sous forme d'image du trait de pinceau.
