Abstract 2D motion visualization is an area that gains increasing interest as it provides an abstraction of motion scenes as well as summarization of motion activities. Artists, designers, and psychologists have explored techniques in which visual media can be organized to engender a narrative and direct viewer’s attention within a scene. The need for such visualizations is currently used in many fields such as for illustrating a sport event in a newspaper, a dynamic experiment in a scientific journal or visualizing a craft process. Furthermore, 2D motion visuals can convey motion and instructions on printed matter and physical surfaces, making possible a wide range of applications that involve physical objects and surfaces (i.e. mixed reality). Recently, such visualizations have been also explored in the domain of Digital Cultural Heritage (CH). Heritage Crafts (HCs) have cultural, historical, economical and societal significance and value and thus they are considered part of our Cultural Heritage. Nevertheless, HCs are threatened with extinction due to the declining number of practitioners and apprentices as well as the lack of interest in young age groups. In this context, motion visualization on static media could be considered valuable for the preservation of HCs for different purposes, including education, training and leisure. Existing research works, on 2D motion visualization, are case-specific by exploiting one or two motion visualization techniques and they mostly address a narrow range of users (i.e. technology experts). Additionally, existing image editing software have extremely complicated user interfaces that require training and experience from the end-users. To that end, this Thesis proposes an approach for motion visualizations inspired by techniques used in visual arts such as paintings, comics, photography and instruction manuals. We present MotiVo, a 2D Human Motion Artistic Visualizer (HAVM) editor that targets the preservation and representation of HCs, by assisting in the semi-automatic creation of readable visualizations and motion summarizations. The proposed system produces artistic image depictions of craft processes and techniques to enhance the educational and presentation value of digital content. The key contributions of the MotiVo editor are: (1) it exploits multiple motion visualization techniques and creates artistic results; (2) it is user-friendly, as for the design of the system the minimum requirements were introduced; (3) it addresses a wide range of end-users (i.e. craftsmen, museum educators, researchers, academics, craft enthusiasts) and especially to novice users with no relevant experience in the image editing software community.
