Abstract

We present multi attribute texture transfer functions for the generation of seismic illustrations. We render seismic data in the style of geological textbook illustrations by combining illustratively rendered axis aligned slices with volume rendering. We have extended the transfer function concept to map volume attributes to 2D textures that flow according to a deformation volume describing the buckling and discontinuites of the layers of the seismic data. Faults in the seismic layers are represented by texture disruptions.
