  • Patent number: 10229514
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system and method for generating procedural textures on an object on the basis of physical ink data and physical applicator data. The system includes: access to target object data having data for initial meshing and initial contouring of the target objects; access to data pertaining to mixture rules and mixture functions; access to physical data for initial textures T; a module for generating a pre-projection virtual rendering provided to combine the physical ink data with the physical applicator data; a module for tessellating the data of the target objects so as to convert the contours of the target objects into meshing; and an integrating module for the physical parameters, the integrating module being provided to generate a new set of textures T+I for the object(s).

  • Patent number: 9959663
    Abstract: A system and method for generating textures on an object from physical ink data and physical applicator data, including: receiving, by a module for generating a rendering outside the object (RHO), the physical ink and physical applicator data and transforming this data to provide a rendering outside the object comprising compatible physical data for projection against a target object regardless of the projection mode; receiving, by a module for transforming RHO, the previously obtained RHO data, and adapting this data for a given rendering projection mode; and receiving, by a module for integrating the physical parameters, the data of the object, the data of the set of textures, the transformed RHO data, and generating a new set of textures for said objects.

  • Publication number: 20160247297
    Abstract: System for generating textures on an object based on the particles emitted by a particle engine, including an access to data of a particles emitter, of particles emitted, of target object, of traces, and of graphical effects; an animation simulation module provided so as to perform a simulation of emission and of displacement for each of the particles provided; a tracer module provided for generating a trace on the surface of a target object corresponding to the displacement of a particle along said surface after an impact of the particle against the target object with the aid of the traces data and of the target object data; a physical parameters integrator module provided for generating a new set of textures for said object taking into account the data of the object, the data of each now or modified trace, and the data of the corresponding graphical effects. Corresponding method for generating textures.

  • Patent number: 8635558
    Abstract: Method to generate a procedural map (50) having a tree structure (40) comprising a plurality of levels (43), each one with at least one node (41) to which is associated at least one parameter, comprising the steps consisting in: providing a tool for parameter setting adapted to parameterize the tree corresponding to the map to provide and adapted to be connected to at least one external source of parameters; receiving, via the tool for parameter setting (or generation of procedural maps) the parameters of the map to be provided; at least one of said parameters coming from an external source; processing said parameters, in order to generate said map; Such a map comprises parameters and a structure allowing it to provide “special” effects in the field of image processing. The invention further provides a tool for generation and/or modification for the implementation of said method.
