Video-to-cartoon is a promising technology for mobile applications. In this paper, we develop a video-to-cartoon system, which can analyze video content and generate the corresponding 3D cartoon. The proposed system consists of two major parts: the media analysis module and the cartoon rendering module, where the former is to extract the 3D information from 2D video and the latter is to roughly reconstruct the 3D scene using the pre-generated models and animations and the extracted 3D information. Compared with the existing video-to-cartoon systems, our developed system generates 3D cartoon instead of 2D cartoon, supports interaction and is able to render the 3D cartoon in a fast manner.
