Is the "unit" thickness of a line assumed to just be one pixel? How do these rasterization techniques change when drawing thicker lines? At what point do we stop considering something a line and instead consider it a shape?


Since we're viewing the individual pixels up close this line looks pretty chunky, but how small, on average, is a pixel? Do these various techniques matter when we zoom out?


How are we able to create and identify this diamond shape within a pixel? If a pixel can be broken down further, can we just use smaller pixels?
