"A Computational method of electronic chinese language portray and Calligraphy" is a technical ebook on desktop technology and its functions within the arts. It makes a speciality of Oriental electronic arts, specifically chinese language arts and portray, providing a multi-disciplinary remedy from the angles of special effects, interactive options, human-computer interplay, and synthetic intelligence. The ebook additionally discusses the original problems and demanding situations of utilizing the pc to provide Oriental arts, together with learn effects via the authors and their classes and engineering stories at the back of those efforts.

Songhua Xu is a working laptop or computer scientist of Zhejiang collage and Yale college, in addition to an honorary researcher of the college of Hong Kong. Francis C.M. Lau is Professor on the collage of Hong Kong the place he leads the platforms study team within the division of desktop technological know-how. Yunhe Pan is Professor of machine technology at Zhejiang collage in addition to Deputy President of chinese language Academy of Engineering.

Zongker, Geraldine Wade, and David H. Salesin. Example-based hinting of true type fonts. , pages 411–416, 2000. 1 Introduction What is digital painting? Wikipedia offers an easy definition [Wik07]: “Digital painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor, oils, impasto, etc. ” The studies of the generation or augmentation of digital paintings and drawings are at the core of Non-Photorealistic Rendering (NPR) research. In fact the early NPR endeavors were exclusively dedicated to this topic.

Most of the existent work is still concentrating on the represention issue of aesthetic Oriental characters and the provision of efficient and compact font system support. Part IV of this book looks at some of our work on the automatic generation of artistic Chinese calligraphy. We have mentioned the font a few times. In fact, there is an intimate relationship between computer calligraphy research and the development of font systems. For the latter the most classical and influential work is Tex and Metafont by Knuth in the seventies [Knu79].

It is well known that automatic semantics understanding is computationally very difficult to achieve, and is recognized as one of the big road blocks in artificial intelligence research. Little progress has been made over the past several decades. So we have the awkward situation where the machine that has generated a piece of digital artwork does not actually understand its artistic value. That means even when the machine has succeeded in generating an acceptable piece artwork, it does not necessarily know that it has succeeded.
