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.

Picture to People in 3D world

I decided to take P2P project strongly to 3D world. I'm planning a very powerful 3D rendering engine for Picture to People.

Since until now P2P deals very few with the "Z-axis", I needed to start a new sub-project for the core libraries. Basically there is nothing ready for this, so I will need to make all the low level 3D libraries from scratch.

I'm projecting this engine very carefully, since I wanna make it very clean and extensible. Possibly I will base it in some ray-tracing algorithm variation, but I'm still considering other alternatives like radiosity. In fact, probably it will be a merge of several techniques.

For now the main practical goal is to make a 3D text renderer able to generate awesome results. Since I already started a draft of some low level 3D libraries, above you can see a 3D letter in wire-frame already made with Picture to People.
