### Diffusion Curves

Dr. Scott Schaefer

Diffusion Curves
• Vector graphics-based representation for 2D images
• Images are piecewise smooth with discontinuities represented as curves

Image taken from “Diffusion Curves: A Vector Representation for Smooth-Shaded Images”

Representation
• Bezier curves represent discontinuities
• Give each curve a color function on left/right side of curve
• Original paper uses linear color change
• Modification: Control points can have any color

Image Construction

Use curves as boundary constraints

Find a harmonic function that interpolates those boundary constraints

Implementation (Simplified)

Define a left/right color for points

Use a background color to represent no data (black)

Implementation (Simplified)
• Colored pixels are constraints
• Find a harmonic function satisfying constraints
• Harmonic function has Laplacian zero everywhere

• Colored pixels are constraints
• Find a harmonic function satisfying constraints
• Harmonic function has Laplacian zero everywhere
• Each value is average of its neighbors

Implementation (Simplified)
• Read pixel buffer back from OpenGL
• Repeat a lot
• For all pixels whose initial value was black, replace with average color of its neighbors from previous iteration

Simple Multi-Grid
• Create power of 2 down-sampled images
• Average value of all non-black pixels
• For each level, starting at second to last
• Up-sample previous level
• Copy pixel value to black high-res pixels (non-black pixels are constraints)
• For some number of iterations
• For each non-constrained pixel, replace with color of its neighbors from previous iteration
