Intelligent Scene Modelling Information Systems Hardback
Edited by Georgios Miaoulis, Dimitri Plemenos
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence series
Scene modeling is a very important part in Computer Graphics because it allows c- ating more or less complex models to be rendered, coming from the real world or from the designer's imagination.
However, scene modeling is a very difficult task, as there is a need of more and more complex scenes and traditional geometric modelers are not well adapted to computer aided design.
Even if traditional scene modelers offer very interesting tools to facilitate the designer's work, they suffer from a very important drawback, the lack of flexibility, which does not authorize the designer to use incomplete or imprecise descriptions, in order to express his (her) mental image of the scene to be designed.
Thus, with most of the current geometric modelers the user must have a quite precise idea of the scene to design before using the modeler to achieve the modeling task.
This kind of design is not really a computer aided one, because the main creative ideas have been elaborated without any help of the modeler.
Declarative scene modeling could be an interesting alternative to traditional g- metric modeling.
Indeed, declarative scene modeling tries to give intuitive solutions to the scene modeling problem by using Artificial Intelligence techniques which allow the user to describe high level properties of a scene and the modeler to give all the solutions corresponding to imprecise properties.
