Abstract: "Departures from a regular texture pattern can happen in many different dimensions. Previous related work has focused on faithful texture synthesis for near-regular texture departing along the color and intensity axes while the underlying geometric regularity is well preserved. In this paper, we address the issue of faithful texture synthesis for textures that have both the structural and color/intensity deformations. We propose a framework that treats irregular texture as a deformation from regular texture by first deducing a deformation field between the input irregular texture and its corresponding regular counterpart. The novel view in this work is to treat the deformation field itself as a texture that is both visual and functional. As a result, we can handle faithful texture synthesis for a much larger variety of near-regular textures."
