Abstract: This paper proposes a real time cartoon creating system called |Q-Cartoon|. Q-Cartoon is a text-to-cartoon creating system. It synthesises the techniques of Chinese word segmentation, script analysing and controlling, and databases, and can make text into fancy cartoons. Q-Cartoon has many advantages, such as real-time generation, small storage space, convenience, easy manipulation, etc. and has a wide foreground in the area of education, entertainment, etc. This system explores a creative way for reusing multimedia data, and with the development of related research, its potential values and applications can be widely extended.

Keywords: cartoon generation; Chinese word segmentation; script analysis; script control; multimedia data reuse; cartoon creation; text-to-cartoon; cartoons.
