What is Picture to People ?

"Picture to People" (P2P) is a huge Computer Graphics project. It was started to create new softwares able to make 2D drawing, 3D rendering, vexel drawing, text effects, photo effects, image filtering and other complex Computer Graphics operations. It has been made from scratch, including its low level Computer Graphics libraries like Maccala. Nowadays, most final features produced for this project are released as free online tools available from its official website. This blog talks about Computer Graphics, mainly concerning Picture to People development.

The hard war against jagging

In test software I can use Windows GDI to draw for me. It's a good choice because the emphasis is about my data structures and models. If I get a exception, I can suppose its not caused by the drawing itself.

But now I started the class which task is to draw. It's time to worry about aliasing. At least in a "output mode" I need to avoid jagging.

I have a lot of algorithms working with integers when it's possible. Rounds and imprecisions turn the jagging stronger yet.

I will have a lot of planning and recoding concerning floating point numbers or anti aliasing methods.

Hard work coming ...
