I would like to know how to go about making the widths and heights of the images inside the mosaic tiles more symmetrical? Currently the images are of asymmetrical dimensions and look "warped". I used Letters and Squares as my Mosaic Image Folder. Attached is the Paint Synthesizer preset I created and used. Letters_Squares_13
OK, so when you are mapping an image or image folder or movie brush to a 'region fill as brush' pen mode drawn region, the current Brush Source image (after any index mapping for the start point) is dynamically interpolated to match the rectangular boundary of the region shape. That is the way it currently works on V5.
People have suggested that we allow for different interpolation algorithm options. Especially to include one that doesn't modify the aspect ratio of the brush image as it gets resized to fit the rectangular boundary of the region shape.
So that is currently on the 'to do' feature list.
If there are other interpolation options you would like to see us add, speak up.
I don't know if content-aware interpolation would really be useful for this kind of thing? The maintain the aspect ratio request i do get.
Background Texture fills work differently. So an image or movie background texture would tile to fill the larger area. Image Folder background textures are on the 'to do' list.
I asked another feature before at:
Please let us to select the origin ponit center/left/right/top/bottom.
Center of mass would work, correct? So the center mapping of the boundary rectangle (from the brush source center to the boundary rectangle center). Whatever interpolation algorithm the user picked would be working off of that mapping.
One default mapping option would be the way it currently works (based off of the (0,0) corner). So all of the old presets would work the way they do now.
