We present a novel method for content-aware image resizing based on optimization of a well-defined image distance function, which preserves both the important regions and the global visual effect (the background or other decorative objects) of an image. The method operates by joint use of seam carving and image scaling. The principle behind our method is(More)
A novel method for projecting points onto a point cloud, possibly with noise, is presented based on the point directed projection (DP) algorithm proposed by Azariadis P., Sapidis N. [Drawing curves onto a cloud of points for point-based modelling. The new method operates directly on the point cloud without any explicit or implicit surface reconstruction(More)
The ray-casting of implicit surfaces on GPU has been explored in the last few years. However, until recently, they were restricted to second degree (quadrics). We present an iterative solution to ray cast cubics and quartics on GPU. Our solution targets efficient implementation , obtaining interactive rendering for thousands of surfaces per frame. We have(More)

We propose a new global light simulation method for diffuse (or moderately glossy) scenes comprising highly tesselated models with simple topology (e.g., scanned meshes). By using the topological coherence of the surface, we show how to extend a classic Finite Element method called the Master Element: We generalize this method to efficiently handle(More)
