Efficient texture synthesis using strict Wang Tiles
Wang Tiles are constructed from four texture samples, arranged so they can always match a choice of other tiles at two edges. Because they are precomputed, Wang Tiles are a very efficient way to generate textures on the fly. But matching problems occur within tiles and at the corners of adjacent tiles. By replacing the edge-matching texture samples with a new sample in the center of the tile, and using the graph cut path-finding algorithm, we overcome these problems and introduce additional texture diversity. Our s-Wang Tiles are a stricter interpretation of the original Wang Tile design, and our tile set is also smaller than that required by -Tiles: only eight different tiles are required for a non-repetitive titling.
