Abstract

This paper presents a media transformation system that transforms animations into comics. The comic presentation not only enhances the efficiency of animation browsing, but also enables users to browse animations just like reading comic books, which is one of the favorite experiences in many people's childhood. We first select representative keyframes, and then devise an optimization framework based on the genetic algorithm to determine how keyframes are grouped and are arranged into the same comic pages. For keyframes in the same page, shot characteristics and keyframe importance are jointly considered to determine the best presentation layout. Subjective evaluation results demonstrate the attractive comic pages please readers and may facilitate efficient browsing and management for animations.
