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.

Released: 3D Text - Global Illumination

I have just released the new Picture to People tool to create 3D text effects. It's called 3D Text - Global Illumination because its renderer is based on advanced global illumination algorithms and heuristics. It's complementary to our other 3D text maker.

This new software is, for sure, the most professional and advanced 3D text generator ever published online. Some of its main features are:

- good color control (including background);
- native professional anti-aliasing;
- realistic soft shadows;
- cross shading (the letters shade each others);
- easy and detailed configuration of 3D transformations;
- many available text depths;
- more than 400 fonts to choose from.

Despite its great quality and ability to deal with complex fonts, there was a huge effort to make this tool with a reasonable performance, as an online software should be. It's finally real.

Below you see a text created by using this new feature (click to enlarge):
