another project

I am planning to start a research project about NON PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERING at the university where I teach. the example below shows how an animated part of some test footage might look like, a combination of live action, CG, traditional animation and several more new techniques we are planning to develop. exciting!

That is wonderful news. Here’s a short I created that makes use of some custom npr techniques. I love exploring the medium.

Very good idea, Hans.

If a computer generated image looks “realistic” or not is, IMHO, a philosophical question.

When I started working on computer animation 22 years ago a shaded ball
with a simple highlight was recepted as a “realistic” rendering.

With the ongoing progress of rendering technology the way of perception
is changing as well. What’s rendered today will be called artificial crap
tommorrow. 😉

The subjective perception and comments denied a clear definition of
what CGI picture is “realistic” or “non-realistic” so far.

That’s why I believe this research project is very important and interesting!
