We present methods for synthesizing 3D shape features on subdivision surfaces using multiscale procedural techniques. Multiscale synthesis is a powerful approach for creating surfaces with different levels of detail. Our methods can also blend multiple example multiresolution surfaces, including procedurally-defined surfaces as well as captured models.
