This paper introduces new terminology to describe the perceptual qualities of the non-photorealistic animation sequences created using an analysis/synthesis approach to rendering. Specifically, we propose the use of different matching optimization criteria as part of the creative control for generating animated sequences, or stylized video, and we explore the perceptual differences that are obtained when different optimization criteria are used. Additionally, metrics are introduced that

We examine a series of sequences generated using different matching algorithms based on these metrics, and a user evaluation of 30 participants demonstrates that our objective metrics are perceptually relevant.
