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.

3D Texts with global illumination

I'm still developing my 3D renderer based on global illumination. It's already in alpha test phase. Currently I'm correcting some minor bugs e trying to make several performance optimizations.

This kind of software can generate nice soft shadows, what it's an interesting difference when compared to my first 3D text maker. Beside that, I'm testing other interesting things: I'm evaluating the possibility to offer a different interface paradigm where you have more control over the 3D model configuration. The drawback is a more complex and less intuitive set of parameters.

Below there is a teaser image that was already generated using my new 3D software (click to enlarge). It will possibly be released in the early months of 2012.
