Research output: Patent

Abstract

Individual images for individual frames of an animation may be rendered to include individual focal areas. A focal area may include one or more of a foveal region corresponding to a gaze direction of a user, an area surrounding the foveal region, and/or other components. The foveal region may comprise a region along the user's line of sight that permits high visual acuity with respect to a periphery of the line of sight. A focal area within an image may be rendered based on parameter values of rendering parameters that are different from parameter values for an area outside the focal area.
