Been wanting to get into texture synthesis from example for a while now :3this one quite old-school and is generated pixel by pixel with Markov Random Fields. Did both Houdini and Python implementations. Was quite fun! And it's just the beginning :D

(left column is generated, right is an example)

Based on this paper :)

Before, there were already ideas of “texture synthesis in a statistical setting as a problem of sampling from a probability distribution”. What the authors did different though is that instead of modeling the whole probability distribution, they ‘grow’ the texture pixel by pixel, every ti...

Hey-hey! I'm releasing the Mirror Scene file from my Siggraph'17 Houdini HIVE talk

It's been a year since then. With changing success, I was making and remaking a tutorial for this scene multiple times. Meanwhile, it was collecting virtual dust on my hard drive. So, I thought of just releasing the file. I cleaned it up (so don't worry, nodes are logically named, you won't be completely on your own with the chaos of my original frankenstein xD). I never realeased just the file, so let's see how it goes :P

PS: oh yeah, the file also include a 4k render of the Mirror Scene ^^

Well, I had to implement a neural style transfer at some point :D great to investigate first-hand the magic behind the algorithm that inspired me to explore Deep Learning :3
