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.

Advanced vector manipulation
Construction of vector structures based on arbitrary (maybe micro segmented) objects is a hard task. Trying to tackle such ambitious work stressed my vector library and I have found some minor (but bothering) bugs.
It's has been a challenge improve my algorithms from this point. Sometimes I need to solve not so easy equations ... floating point imprecision is an powerful enemy.
Maybe I will need some king of "controlled truncation" or backtracking. I'm testing some alternatives.
My bug list is very huge for my taste ... Maybe I will not have time to write here for a while.
