Dendrite Modeling (download 475 KB)
Modeling dendrites, including trees, lightning, river systems, and
all manner of branching structures, has been frequently undertaken in
computer graphics. We propose a new dendritic modeling framework
using path planning as the basic operation.
Improved Image Quilting (download 1.3 MB)
Path planning is a great optimization technique, but the
usual cost metric (sum of all path edges) is not always the
best. Here, we propose applying a non-scalar path cost metric
to Image Quilting, and show how we can get perceptually better
results with about the same computational expense.
