Generative 3D Modeling paper: http://www.scribd.com/doc/279861/Generative-3D-Models Wikipedia entry of Generative Modeling Language: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generative_Modelling_Language Usual 3D file formats describe a virtual world in terms of geometric primitives. These may be cubes and spheres in a CSG tree, NURBS patches, a set of implicit functions, a consommé of triangles, or just a cloud of points. The term “generative […]

seam carving for content-aware image resizing Effective resizing of images should not only use geometric constraints, but consider the image content as well. A seam is an optimal 8-connected path of pixels on a single image from top to bottom, or left to right, where optimality is defined by an image energy function. By repeatedly […]
