This investigation project presents an approach to the task of implementing a system for the real-time automatic painterly rendering of video using existing algorithms. The strengths and weaknesses of these algorithms are evaluated on numerous source videos and modifications made to improve the algorithms with further recommendations for their improvement suggested. An investigation is carried out in the non-photo realistic-rendering area of Computer Vision research. This identifies the history and current level of research within NPR. Both static and video algorithms are investigated to research the numerous techniques for painterly rendering. The research naturally leads to the design and implementation of a system for the automatic painterly rendering of video that can be evaluated against a number of criteria. Sample images are also included in an appendix to supplement the dissertation.
