Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

GIMP -Plugins

Postby DagF » Wed Jan 11, 2012 9:35 am

I don't think we have made a list of what plugins we use so i will start.

I have a few plugins but i rearly use any other than resynthesizer. It is a texture synthesis, but it works good for making tilable textures.
I know there is one that folows GIMP, but i find this better.
You select what you want to make tilable, select horisontal and or vertical then start it.
It works inside the same window and i find the result more than ofter to be good.

I just hope you will think of me when Rayne is done with me.
I'm not sure if he aprowes of plugins like this.

It works nice on much of the images from cgtextures but i can not get it working correctly with the onec i have taken forcing me to do it like in 27's tutos.

It's in photoshop CS5 but it's called "content aware fill". basically you just make a selection, hit delete and pick "content aware" and photoshop replaces the selection with surrounding pattern. It's great when you want to remove a larger detail and retouching it would take hours. Or to fix seams.

This isn't a gimp plugin but I found this project from 2002

Semi Causal Nonparametric Markov Random Field Texture Synthesis on a Gaussian Pyramid with K Nearest Search

The site has a little C++ app that can be downloaded and built on windows, linux or mac and then run from the command line, the results are quite good.

I started with this teeny image of rust (64x64)

rust.jpg
Teeny sample
rust.jpg (11.9 KiB) Viewed 3986 times


and it created me a nice 512x512 texture like this

rust_n1_s_t7_c_512x512.jpg
Generated texture


Using a single blob

blob.png
Teeny blob

It can generate something like this

blob_n1_s_t4_c_256x256.png
blob_n1_s_t4_c_256x256.png (19.3 KiB) Viewed 3986 times


or with slightly different parameters

blob_n1_s_t5_c_256x256.png

If you like command line tools, you might like this. The cool thing about using command line tools is that you can set up a directory of samples, run the tool overnight and wake up a 100 new textures.

I had this problem also - try this inside the build folder.

g++ -O3 -fopenmp -I/usr/local/include/ImageMagick -I./src nonparaMRF_gaussian_k.cc lib/libImage.a lib/nr_lib.a Neighbourhood.o Option.o Pyramid.o Glib.o -L/usr/local/lib -lMagick++ -lMagickCore -L/usr/local/lib -lMagick++ -lMagickCore -o nonparaMRF_gaussian_k

I moved the -l libraries to the end of the line and it worked. You can edit the make file to fix this for all builds.

I perhaps should have mentioned that I had to mess around with it to get it to compile.
