Just a quick word to let you know that it has taken longer than I expected to fine tune the new painting effect for the upcoming version of FotoSketcher.
The proof of concept looked promising, but the rendering times of the new effect were far too long and optimising strategies either did not speed things up enough or lowered the quality too much.
So it's back to the drawing board (pun intended)!
In the meantime, here are 3 examples with the same number of brushtrokes, but with 3 different quality settings (increasingly accurate stroke placement):
- example 1 - low quality (relatively fast):
- example 2 - medium quality (slower):
- example 3 - high quality (slowest):
I'll continue to keep you posted here as I make progress.
All the best,
