Method for creating a final real-time photorealistic image of a virtual object, corresponding to a real object arranged on an original photo of a user, in a realistic orientation related to the user's position, includes: detecting the presence of an area for the object in the photo; determining the position of characteristic points of the area for the object in the photo; determining the 3d orientation of the face, the angles φ and ψ of the camera having taken the photo relative to the principal plane of the area; selecting the texture to be used for the virtual object, in accordance with the angle-of-view, and generating the view of the virtual object in 3d; creating a first layered rendering in the correct position consistent with the position of the placement area for the object in the original photo; obtaining the photorealistic rendering by adding overlays to obtain the final image.. .

Method and performing path rendering
A method of performing path rendering, includes acquiring information of vertexes in an object to be rendered in a frame, and calculating a winding number of a pixel in the frame, based on a relationship between a position of the pixel and a proceeding direction of a path connecting the vertexes. The method further includes determining whether to assign a color to the pixel, based on the winding number..

Creation and delivery of pre-rendered web pages for accelerated browsing
The process of rendering web pages can be significantly improved with a content delivery system that pre-renders web content for a client device. A web page “program” can be pre-executed and the result delivered to a requesting client device, rather than or before sending a traditional set of web page components, such as a markup language document, cascading style sheets, embedded objects.
