Abstract: "We compare the performance of four texture synthesis algorithms on synthesizing regular and near-regular textures in this report. Our results show that the near-regular texture synthesis remains to be a challenging problem. This is because a near-regular texture demonstrates both global regularity and local randomness in its texture pattern. It is difficult to preserve both properties in the synthetic textures. The comparison indicates that a specially-designed texture synthesis algorithm that respects the nature of near-regular textures can produce more faithfully synthesized textures than general purpose state of the art synthesis algorithms."
