A Hybrid Method for Computing Apparent Ridges

Eric Jardim

Keywords:
apparent ridges, line drawing, non-photorealistic rendering

Abstract:
We propose a hybrid method for computing apparent ridges on triangle meshes. Our method combines both object-space and image-space computations and runs partially in the GPU, taking advantage of modern graphic cards processing power and producing faster results in real time.
