Abstract

See full text

Techniques for representing a stroke in an image, the stroke being defined by a path extending across one or more positions in the image and one or more stroke parameters, each stroke parameter representing an appearance attribute of the stroke. The techniques include associating values for the one or more stroke parameters with time values in a time dimension of the stroke, the parameter values being associated with the time values independent of position along the stroke path; and representing the stroke according to the parameter values and their associated time values.
