ABSTRACT: Under image synthesis we understand not only the transformation of models into imagery but also a process that involves the capture and the modeling of the intentions of a user. Depending on the required image quality, this process might demand several specialized tasks, such as geometric modeling, lighting modeling and image processing. Each of these tasks, in their turn, might provide a graphical interactive interface to facilitate the data enhancements. There is a variety of commercial and academic stand-alone interactive synthesis systems. However, none of them embraces all existing technologies. To explore the individual qualities of each system, a variety of data format converters is written and the users are responsible for the co-working of these systems. This report shows a framework for an extensible interactive image synthesis environment. It is an attempt to overcome the integration problem that proprietary application developers usually face. The basic idea is that any co...
