Three contributions mainly developed by our bachelor and master students Benito Buchheim, Maximilian Mayer, and Philip Trenz were accepted for the SIGGRAPH 2021 Appy Hour:
- Benito Buchheim, Max Reimann, Sebastian Pasewaldt, Jürgen Döllner, and Matthias Trapp
"StyleTune: Interactive Style Transfer Enhancement on Mobile Devices": StyleTune is a mobile app for photo stylization from artistic style exemplars and enables interactively editing style elements such as retouching the size and orientation of brush strokes. Through a combination of neural style transfer techniques, users can create high fidelity stylizations with resolutions of more than 20 Mpix.
- Maximilian Mayer, Philip Trenz, Sebastian Pasewaldt, Mandy Klingbeil, Jürgen Döllner, Matthias Trapp, and Amir Semmo
"MotionViz – Artistic Visualization of Human Motion on Mobile Devices": MotionViz is a mobile app that enables users to amplify motion in videos. The user interface enables art direction of manifold artistic effects and elements like silhouettes, halos, and contour lines. These can be interactively applied and animated to express dynamics, e.g., of dancers, athletes, and other performers with ease.
- Philip Trenz, Mandy Klingbeil, Sebastian Pasewaldt, Jürgen Döllner, and Matthias Trapp
"Forward Selfies": ForwardSelfies is a mobile app that rethinks how selfies are captured. By seamlessly combining the images captured with the front- and rear-facing camera, our app eases the process of capturing selfies. It deals with the problem of unnatural selfie poses, and allows the generation of new kind of selfie compositions.
The conference is taking place virtually 9–13 August: https://s2021.siggraph.org. This research was enabled by the collaboration of Digital Masterpieces and the Computer Graphics Systems Group (funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through grant 01IS18092/"mdViPro" and 01IS19006/"KI-LAB-ITSE").
