Abstract: Motion stylization is an illustration technique that conveys the sense of motion in a still frame. Various stylization techniques exist such as blurring, deformation, speed lines, and vibration lines. Our work explores speed lines and vibrations. We present algorithms that render speed line and vibration stylization in real-time. The motion of the object is interactively controlled by the user with a tangible interface that is tracked in 3-D. Our proposed approach allows a direct mapping from the user’s motion to expressive animations.
