Abstract:
With more and more digital media, especially in the eld of virtual reality where detailed and convincing scenes are much required, procedural scene generation is a big helping tool for artists. A problem is that dening scene descriptions through these procedures usually requires a knowledge in formal language grammars, programming theory and manually editing textual les using a strict syntax, making it less intuitive to use. Luckily, graphical user interfaces has made a lot of tasks on computers easier to perform and out of the belief that creating computer programs can also be one of them, visual programming languages (VPLs) have emerged. The goal in VPLs is to shift more work from the programmer to the integrated development environment (IDE), making programming an user-friendlier task. In this thesis, an approach of using a VPL for dening procedures that automatically generate virtual scenes is presented. The methods required to build a VPL are presented, including a novel method of generating readable code in a structured programming language. Also, the methods for achieving basic principles of VPLs will be shown  suitable visual presentation of information and guiding the programmer in the right direction using constraints. On the other hand, procedural generation methods are presented in the context of visual programming  adapting the application programming interface (API) of these methods to better serve the user. The main focus will be on the methods for urban modeling, such as building, city layout and details generation with random number generation used to create non-deterministic scenes. These methods are demonstrated on an example of vIDE, a VPL based on the Eclipse IDE. The design of vIDE with respect to the Eclipse Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF) is described. The concept of a owchart graphical notation is examined, its mapping to an algorithm data structure and the nal conversion to a textual program (for example in the scripting language Python). The procedural generation functionality is encapsulated in a C++ library libprocedural, which uses Ogre as a graphical engine. To make the interface between vIDE and libprocedural intuitive, high-level Python bindings were created.
