Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider the problem of generating freehand raster graphics pictures at ultra high definition (typically one gigapixel per picture) by scan converting extruded lines. We describe a fast scan conversion algorithm which is linear in final resolution and which incorporates a number of features to ensure high efficiency. Sample pictures and corresponding performance figures are included.
