The visual effects industry is no stranger to disruption. It has been shown to be both remarkably resilient yet also occasionally fragile at the same time. There are a handful of large, successful companies which have been in existence for decades, yet others have failed to endure through more challenging times. Some have grown rapidly…Read More

Texture Networks: Feed-forward Synthesis of Textures and Stylized Images

Gatys et al. recently demonstrated that deep networks can generate beautiful textures and stylized images from a single texture example. However, their methods requires a slow and memory-consuming optimization process. We propose here an alternative approach that moves the computational burden to a learning stage. Given a single example of a texture, our approach trains…Read More
