A Vector-based representation for image warping.
Computer Graphics Forum, 19(3), pages C419-C425 and C543,
A method for image analysis, representation and re-synthesis is
introduced. Unlike other schemes it is not pixel based but rather
represents a picture as vector data, from which an altered
version of the original image can be rendered. Representing an
image as vector data allows performing operations such as
zooming, retouching or colourising, avoiding common problems
associated with pixel image manipulation.
This paper brings together methods from the areas of computer
vision, image compositing and image based rendering to prove
that this type of image representation is a step towards
accurate and efficient image manipulation.
