Video Demonstration of Pixar’s Stylizing Animation by Example Paper

"While non-photorealistic rendering is not a new concept, the system devised at Pixar contains a level of automation and consistency that would allow a sophisticated painterly style to be scaled for feature film production. According to Michael Kass, a senior scientist at Pixar, there are two major innovations in the project: 1) temporal coherence, which is the fluidness of images from frame to frame, and 2) the control over the final look that is gained by an artist who paints individual keyframes. The full paper, as well as additional documentation, can be downloaded on Pixar’s website.” -Amid Amidi, Cartoon Brew
