Theseus Warp

The Theseus Warp technique assumes area sampling and resampling in contrast to point sampling and resampling. Complete, continuous, contiguous and uniformly weighted area resampling delivers high fidelity image transformation with a lesser computational cost than bi-cubic resampling.

Area Resampling

Complete and Uniform:

Every input pixel contributes a weight of exactly 1 to the output image.

Contiguous and Continuous:

Contiguous resampling apertures with continuously varying size, shape and position over the input image.

Point Resampling

Incomplete and Nonuniform:

Selected input pixels contribute with varying weights to the output image.

Non-Contiguous and Discrete:

Non-contiguous resampling apertures of constant size and shape are positioned discretely over the input image.
