Abstract. This paper presents a new pre-filtering technique for antialiasing two-dimensional continuous curves which enables the correct handling of the geometry (self intersections, small loops, cusps, curves with high and small radius of curvature, etc.) using a generic class of filters. Moreover, the technique allow for rendering curves of arbitrary thickness and can be optimally tuned to the bits used for image quantisation.
