Time-Varying Textures: Definition, Acquisition, and Synthesis

A new class of textures with simple algorithms for synthesis and controllability: Time-varying textures, in which appearance evolves over time. A database of these textures is being created.

Efficient Magnification of Bi-Level Textures

Standard tri-linear filtering blurs road signs and similar items excessively. We use a single-channel MIP map of small size and an efficient pixel shader to significantly improve bi-level textures.
