—The scan-converted straight line may contain many pixel segments of identical shapes. Therefore, instead of scan-converting the whole line step by step, we can scan-convert multiple segments of a line through copying and replicating. We have found that through shifting and copying we can significantly enhance the scan-conversion. In software simulation our result shows that on the average our new scan-conversion algorithm is always faster than existing algorithms.
