Depixelizing Algorithm
« on: July 26, 2011, 12:32:25 PM »
Hi folks,
I just stumbled upon this paper. Maybe it's interesting for some of you, especially the vector guys :)

It's an algorithm that creates smooth images from pixel art images.

There are some nice example images, where you can see what this algorithm is capable of. Really stunning results IMHO.

Here ist an article about the algorithm: http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/84040-depixelizing-pixel-art-upscaling-retro-8bit-games
And the site of the developers at M$ http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/kopf/pixelart/index.html

`Contrariwise,' continued Tweedledee, `if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.'
