Painterly morphing effects for mobile smart devices

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper proposes a painterly morphing algorithm for mobile smart devices, where each frame in the morphing sequence looks like an oil-painted picture with brush strokes. It can be presented, for example, during the transition between the main screen and a specific application screen. For this, a novel dissimilarity function and acceleration data structures are developed. The experimental results show that the algorithm produces visually stunning effects at an interactive time.
