Dr. Woohoo (blog.drwoohoo.com) is a New Mexico-based artist and programmer. Woohoo sculpts the form of his generative artwork and then harnesses natural phenomena (wind, gravity, etc.) and music, through algorithms, to drive his brushstrokes and composition. With a DIY attitude, he creates his own color, paint and visual effects applications using Adobe AIR, and rather than recreate existing features and functionality, Woohoo integrates his tools with applications like Photoshop, Illustrator and Maya. Woohoo's latest work explores the dichotomy between Population vs. Consumption from the abstract perspective of Mother Nature. For more information on Dr. Woohoo, you can find him at DrWoohoo.com or in the featured article of the March issue of Photoshop User magazine.
This demo illustrates our research to bring interactivity to video editing: Our system analyzes videos using computer vision techniques, enabling interactive annotation, browsing, and even drag-and-drop composition of new still images using video footage.
This is a joint research project of Adobe and the University of Washington.
This short video demonstrates advanced image editing techniques made possible by a new algorithm we have developed for quickly finding good matches between all parts (patches) of two different image regions.
The project is a collaboration between Adobe, Princeton University, and the University of Washington. We will present it in the technical papers session at SIGGRAPH '09 in New Orleans this August. You can find more information (including a PDF of the paper and the full video with more background and technical details) at
