Toward Greater Artistic Control for Interactive Evolution of Images and Animation

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNTCS,volume 4448)

Abstract

We present several practical improvements to the interactive evolution of 2D images, some of which are also applicable to more general genetic programming problems. We introduce tree alignments to improve the animation of evolved images when using genetic cross dissolves. The goal of these improvements is to strengthen the interactive evolution toolset and give the artist greater control and expressive power.

Keywords

  • Root Node
  • Leaf Node
  • User Control
  • Optimal Alignment
  • Genetic Cross

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
