Most computer graphics pictures have been computed all at once, so that the rendering program takes care of all computations relating to the overlap of objects. There are several applications, however, where elements must be rendered separately, relying on compositing techniques for the anti-aliased accumulation of the full image. This paper presents the case for four-channel pictures, demonstrating that a matte component can be computed similarly to the color channels. The paper discusses… Expand

TLDR
A new way to derive the over operator is shown and some implementation details that the author has found useful are described, which are related to matting and alpha blending. Expand
Digital Compositing
It is often intended to merge two or more digital images into one image, an example would be special effects in films or photomontages. The process of assembling these images into one final image isExpand
Image Processing for Computer Graphics
TLDR
This book provides a thorough treatment of image processing with an emphasis on those aspects most used in computer graphics, and a good balance is struck between discussing the underlying mathematics of the subject and the main topics covered. Expand
Multiresolution painting and compositing
TLDR
A representation for multiresolution images and methods for creating such images using painting and compositing operations are described and it is shown how fractional-level zooming can be implemented in order to allow a user to display and edit portions of aMultiresolution image at any arbitrary size.

Volume rendering
A technique for rendering images of volumes containing mixtures of materials is presented. The shading model allows both the interior of a material and the boundary between materials to be colored.Expand
Order Independent Image Compositing
TLDR
This paper presents a parallel algorithm producing the same results whilst requiring only one input image at a time to be held in memory, for the automatic production of pan-European mosaics of Landsat images. Expand
ParCompMark, a Benchmark Environment for Parallel Image Compositing
TLDR
ParCompMark (Parallel Compositing Benchmark Framework) is presented which can measure the operation of sort-last parallel rendering techniques and gives a test-bench for the Parallel Compositing API specified by Hewlett-Packard and Computational Engineering International. Expand

Efficient Splatting Using Modern Graphics Hardware
TLDR
The results show that vertex-shader rendering offers an order of magnitude speed-up over immediate mode rendering and that interactive volume rendering is becoming feasible on these consumer-level graphics cards for complex volumes with millions of voxels. Expand
