We present a method for resolution independent rendering of paths and bounded regions, defined by quadratic and
cubic spline
curves, that leverages the parallelism of
programmable graphics hardware
to achieve high performance. A simple implicit equation for a
parametric curve
is found in a space that can be thought of as an analog to texture space. The image of a curve's Bézier control points are found in this space and assigned to the control points as texture coordinates. When the triangle(s) corresponding to the Bézier curve control hull are rendered, a pixel shader program evaluates the implicit equation for a pixel's interpolated texture coordinates to determine an inside/outside test for the curve. We extend our technique to handle antialiasing of boundaries. We also construct a vector image from mosaics of triangulated Bézier control points and show how to deform such images to create resolution independent texture on
three dimensional
objects.
