Abstract

We investigated how motion lines drawn in the background of a running human silhouette affect motion impressions of a runner in a static image. Observers evaluated the strength and direction of motion impression. The results show that parallel lines do not enhance frontoparallel motion impressions, while converging lines do so in an in-depth direction. This is a counter example to the hypothesis that motion lines in the background represent motion streaks of the background when one visually tracks a moving object.
