Recently, we have proposed a novel approach to generating augmented video streams. The output images are a non-photorealistic reproduction of the augmented environment. Special stylization methods are applied to both the background camera image and the virtual objects. This way, the graphical foreground and the real background images are rendered in a similar style, so that they are less distinguishable from each other. Here, we present a new algorithm for the cartoon-like stylization of augmented reality images, which uses a novel post-processing filter for cartoon-like color segmentation and high-contrast silhouettes. In order to make a fast post-processing of rendered images possible, the programmability of modern graphics hardware is exploited. The system is capable of generating a stylized augmented video stream of high visual quality at real-time frame rates.
