The end (and a new beginning)
GSoC 2013 is over and I thought that I should write an “ending post” for this category.
libdepixelize is integrated in Inkscape source code and its next version will feature a new “Trace Pixel Art” dialog. Check the videos below:
Optimization is disabled by default on Inkscape GUI, because it is in an experimental state currently (the harmonic maps triangulation is not implemented and some required preprocessing steps are buggy). You still can use the libdepixelize’s command line application if you want to play with the experimental features.
I’m finishing the final bits for a polished result regarding extra color information (this feature is beyond Kopf-Lischinski original algorithm) and then I’ll polish the Inkscape integration a bit more (processing in a background thread).
The “new beginning” text on the post title comes from the fact that I’ll continue to work with my mentor to improve the Kopf-Lischinski algorithm.
Stay tuned (via RSS)!
“Polished result regarding extra color information…” is finished. There is one very minor issue and a minor improvement (there will always be), but they can wait a little longer. Enjoy it!
