Declarative Camera Planning Roles and Requirements
Static camera planning is a fundamental problem for both interactive and non-interactive computer graphics. We examine the nature or the problem, contrasting procedural and declarative specifications of camera position. In establishing the desirability of the declarative approach, we identify the a number of components: an image description language; an object ontology; and a framework for performing constrained optimization.
