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.

Artistic Effects for text

Make your own cloud text right now. You can get the most impressive text effects using Picture to People text effect generator. No design skills needed.

Continuing the examples about my researches "not canonically vector based", I brought back a very interesting library I coded years ago. A library for make procedurally calculated text drawings.

I created math models for render procedural materials having a font outline as directional field. The results can be beautiful and make a lot of sense for use in a suitable context. The image above, for example, could be very interesting in a site about airplanes, nature or weather (of course the rendered word would not be "Text").

The screenshots show results of a particular model developed to render text made of clouds.

If I receive enough asks, I will make a special page concerning most of my "nature mimic" effects for text.
