    Screen-space curvature for production-quality rendering and compositing



    Surface curvature is a measure commonly employed in Computer Graphics for a vast range of applications: for modeling purposes of course, but also to drive texture generation, or to produce exaggerated or stylized shading results (see Figure 1).
