Title: GENERATION OF VARIATIONS IN COMPUTER GRAPHICS FROM INTERMEDIATE FILE FORMATS OF LIMITED VARIABILITY, INCLUDING GENERATION OF DIFFERENT GAME APPEARANCES OR GAME OUTCOMES
Abstract:
A method and system is provided of enhancing the variability of high-quality computer graphics from limited sources utilizing minimal processing and bandwidth in real time. An underlying backdrop 3D model is generated. Next, Partially Rendered Pixels (PRP) of animated 3D characters are generated having lighting and texture information compatible with the underlying backdrop 3D model. The texture and other ancillary data are removed or omitted from the PRP animated 3D characters leaving only a detailed skeletal model. The extracted texture and other ancillary data are placed in a separate PRP lookup table. A fully rendered video segment is created from the PRP and a selected set of texture and other ancillary data.
