tessellimage — Converts an image to triangles using Delaunay tessellation.

Synopsis

tessellimage [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-delay number] [-duration number] [-duration2 number] [-max-depth number] [-no-outline] [-no-fill-screen] [-fps]

Description

Converts an image to triangles using Delaunay tessellation, and animates the result at various depths. More triangles are allocated to visually complex parts of the image. This is accomplished by first computing the first derivative of the image: the distance between each pixel and its neighbors. Then the Delaunay control points are chosen by selecting those pixels whose distance value is above a certain threshold: those are the pixels that have the largest change in color/brightness.

Options

-visual visual

Specify which visual to use.  Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.

-window

Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

-root

Draw on the root window.

-delay number

Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default: 30000 (0.03 seconds).

-duration number

Length of time until loading a new image. Default: 2 minutes.

-duration2 number

Length of time until increasing or decreasing the triangulation depth. Default: 0.4 seconds.

-max-depth number

The maximum number of triangles to render.  Default: 40000.

-outline | -no-outline

Whether to outline the triangles.

-fill-screen | -no-fill-screen

Whether to zoom in on the image to completely fill the screen, or to center it.

-fps | -no-fps

Whether to show a frames-per-second display at the bottom of the screen.
