Rendering with Paintstrokes
Motion Tracking for Special Effects in the Film Industry
A rendering meta-primitive based on the generalized cylinder and an algorithm that dynamically tesselates it into optimal arrangements of polygons relative to the viewer's position and orientation.

Texturing Implicit Surfaces with Particle Systems
Texture maps representing linear and arc measurement scales provide a visually accessible set of measurements without adding scene clutter or auxiliary measurement widgets.
University of Regina
An intuitive yet effective method to apply bidimensional texture onto implicit surfaces. Unlike other methods, this approach includes effective tools for controlling the placement of the applied texture.
