Real-time texture synthesis by patch-based sampling
Baining Guo, Heung-Yeung Shum, Ce Liu, Ying-Qing Xu, Lin Liang
Pages: 127-150
DOI: 10.1145/501786.501787
We present an algorithm for synthesizing textures from an input sample. This patch-based sampling algorithm is fast and it makes high-quality texture synthesis a real-time process. For generating textures of the same size and comparable quality,...

Collisions and perception
Carol O'Sullivan, John Dingliana
Pages: 151-168
DOI: 10.1145/501786.501788
Level of Detail (LOD) techniques for real-time rendering and related perceptual issues have received a lot of attention in recent years. Researchers have also begun to look at the issue of perceptually adaptive techniques for plausible physical...

The virtual mesh: a geometric abstraction for efficiently computing radiosity
E. Wies, F. Cuny, J.-C. Paul, S. Petit Jean, L. Alonso, S. Lazard
Pages: 169-201
DOI: 10.1145/501786.501789
In this article, we introduce a general-purpose method for computing radiosity on scenes made of parametric surfaces with arbitrary trimming curves. In contrast with past approaches that require a tessellation of the input surfaces (be it made up of...
