Nowadays, a personal music collection may comprise thousands of MP3 files. Visualization can help the user to gain an overview and to find similar songs inside so large a set. We describe a method to create icons from audio files in such a way that songs which the user considers similar receive similar icons. This allows visual data mining in standard(More)
Equalizing is one of the most important tasks in audio engineering. It also is a task that requires technical and auditory training to achieve the desired results. We propose to simplify the use of an equalizer by providing a visual arrangement of subjective terms such as 'warm', 'present', 'boomy' instead of the standard controls that closely correspond to(More)
Semi-automated solutions can transform the images of a film into a comic strip. Whereas the conversion of movies [Hwang et al. 2006] and 3D games [Shamir et al. 2006] to comics has been addressed before, we propose novel ways of user interaction and--most prominently--leverage much information from a movie's screenplay.

Low-cost accelerometers can be employed to create a motion-capture solution for below US$ 100. It may be used in mobile settings employing an MP3 player or a similar recording device to capture the analog data of 15 degrees of freedom. The solution is integrated with standard 3D animation software. We introduce methods to extract and tweak kinematical as(More)
