Abstract

A method is described to create, alter, and load image patterns to an all-points-addressable greyscale display unit. A menu-driven software program allows creation, alteration, and transferring of image patterns to an all-points-addressable display unit. These image patterns are combined with predefined anti-alias weighting values so that the display unit picture element resolutions are varied for experimental purposes and the anti-aliasing algorithms can be validated. Provisions are made to support loading and saving images as well as video lookup tables. Images can be viewed as an 8 by 8-grid matrix or blow-up to view each of the 64 grids as a 16 by 16 bits on the PC monitor. The image can be displayed as a 128 by 128-bit matrix on a graphic printer or on a color graphic monitor. Six options are provided in the main menu.
