  • Patent number: 11514620
    Abstract: Graphic arts software has evolved to provide users with a variety of mark making tools to simulate different brushes, papers, and applied media such as ink, chalk, watercolour, spray paint and oils. However, in many instances the marks rendered appear unnatural and artificial despite the software's goal being to simulate as realistically. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide either users or the software application with a mechanism to remove or reduce artifacts indicative of artificial generation, e.g. rapid transitions. Further, in many instances the graphic images generated and/or manipulated refer to imagined environments or have elements that are physical in nature. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide users with a range of mark making tools that represent marks made by mark making tools comprising multiple elements following physical laws.

  • Patent number: 11436741
    Abstract: A method for aligning two different magnified images of the same subject includes a first step of precomputing rigid transformations for the two different images globally (i.e., for all or approximately all regions of the images). Pairs of corresponding features in the two different magnified images are identified and transformation values are assigned to each of the pairs of corresponding features. In a second step, while images are being generated for display to a user, a locally optimal rigid transformation for the current field of view is computed. In a third step the images are aligned as per the locally optimal rigid transformation. Non-zero weight is given to transformation values for pairs of features that are outside the current field of view. Typically, the second and third steps are repeated many times as the images are generated for display and user either changes magnification or pans/navigates to a different location in the images.

  • Patent number: 11366567
    Abstract: An industrial integrated development environment (IDE) comprises a development interface that affords a user a great deal of control over the editing tools, workspace canvases, and project information rendered at a given time. The industrial IDE system automatically filters the tools, panels, and information available for selection based on a current project development task, such that a focused subset of editing tools relevant to a current development task or context are made available for selection while other tools are hidden. The development interface also allows the user to selectively render or hide selected tools or information from among the relevant, filtered set of tools. This can reduce or eliminate unnecessary clutter and aid in quickly and easily locating and selecting a desired editing function. The IDE's development interface can also conform to a structured organization of workspace canvases and panels that facilitates intuitive workflow.

The processing circuit obtains an anti-RI gain value corresponding to a current pixel in the fingerprint image frame from a lookup table. The processing circuit compensates an original illumination of the current pixel using the anti-RI gain value to obtain a compensated illumination of the current pixel.

  • Patent number: 11163506
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes an extraction unit and a setting unit. When a job for a specific process is obtained, the extraction unit extracts any piece of multiple different predetermined pieces of first policy information. The setting unit sets the extracted first policy information as second policy information to an execution unit. The extracted first policy information is extracted by the extraction unit. The execution unit does the job on the basis of the second policy information. The second policy information is different from the first policy information.

  • Patent number: 11151754
    Abstract: Graphic arts software has evolved to provide users with a variety of mark making tools to simulate different brushes, papers, and applied media such as ink, chalk, watercolour, spray paint and oils. However, in many instances the marks rendered appear unnatural and artificial despite the software's goal being to simulate as realistically. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide either users or the software application with a mechanism to remove or reduce artifacts indicative of artificial generation, e.g. rapid transitions. Further, in many instances the graphic images generated and/or manipulated refer to imagined environments or have elements that are physical in nature. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide users with a range of mark making tools that represent marks made by mark making tools comprising multiple elements following physical laws.

  • Patent number: 11146777
    Abstract: A method for efficiently populating a display is provided. The method can include identifying a point at which a world ray intersects a capture surface defined by capture points of a scene, identifying a capture point closest to the identified point, generating a motion vector based on the motion vectors for each of two directly adjacent capture points, identifying a vector in the generated motion vector at a location at which the world ray intersects an image surface, and providing a pixel value from the image data of the capture point, the pixel value corresponding to a location in the image surface at which a vector of the generated motion vector points to the location at which the world ray intersects the image surface within a threshold distance or after a specified number of iterations.

  • Patent number: 11138795
    Abstract: In a situation where a capturing device is capturing a first image of a scene comprising a display device displaying a second image, a salient idea is to send both the captured first image and the second image, being displayed by the display device to a processing device, for comparatively processing the first and the second image to determine a characteristic associated with the display device. Being able to process the first image (comprising a displayed second image) together with the original second image advantageously allows to determine various characteristics associated with the display device that altered the displayed second image within the first image, making it different from the initial second image. Characteristics associated with the display device are for example a specular reflection occurring on the display device in the scene and disturbing the capture of the scene.

  • Patent number: 11107195
    Abstract: An immersive content production system may capture a plurality of images of a physical object in a performance area using a taking camera. The system may determine an orientation and a velocity of the taking camera with respect to the physical object in the performance area. A user may select a first amount of motion blur exhibited by the images of the physical object based on a desired motion effects. The system may determine a correction to apply to a virtual object based at least in part on the orientation and the velocity of the taking camera and the desired motion blur effect. The system may also detect the distance from the taking camera to a physical object and the taking camera to the virtual display. The system may use these distances to generate a corrected circle of confusion for the virtual images on the display.
