Texture Synthesis


Review: Texture framework

Types of Texture:

Store or Compute?

In-Depth Examples:

An Image Synthesizer
Ken Perlin
Siggraph 1985

PSE: "Pixel Stream Editor"
  • Example:
    	color = white * Noise(point)
  • Fancier example:
    	function boring_marble(point)
    		x = point[1]
    		return marble_color(sin(x))
  • Even fancier example: (EFE)
    	function marble(point)
    		x = point[1] + turbulence(point)
    		return marble_color(sin(x))
