Morphic 3 samples
Morphic 3 is a research and development project aimed at building the next
standard in 2D user interfaces. It will be fully zoomeable, and will do
mathematically proved alias-free rendering. In order to achieve these
objectives, several techniques and design features are described. Some
of them are new and others are not, but have never been consistently
applied to a 2D GUI.
All you ever heard about graphics anti-aliasing is wrong!
Now that I got your attention, what I really mean is that the rendering
software and algorithms that are usually presented as state of the art,
in fact are not. This includes many textbooks. I'm talking about the
usual Pixel Coverage technique, and the more expensive but sometimes
better looking Supersampling technique.
The sampling theorem is about 80 years old. It is the base (together
with Fourier analysis) of most of the DSP (Digital Signal Processing)
field. It is therefore the basis of digital audio and photography. However, existing graphics software
completely ignore the theory. My quest for higher quality resulted in the idea of applying the
theory for all
rendering. This allows for mathematically proved alias free rendering.
In fact, I developed new drawing algorithms that give better results than those in Cairo, AGG, etc.
New! See it in action here.
