  In this work, we propose to address exemplar-based texture synthesis with a model based on optimal transport in the patch space. More precisely, starting from a Gaussian random field at coarse scale, we propose to apply several local transformations in order to reimpose geometric features in a way which is statistically compliant to the patch distribution of the input texture. These local transformations operate on the 3x3 patches at multiple scales and are designed to solve a semi-discrete optimal transport problem in the patch space. They essentially consist of weighted nearest neighbor assignments, that are able to reimpose the empirical patch distribution of the exemplar at multiple scales.

DPP Acceleration

  The synthesis algorithm presented above can be accelerated by exploiting a subsampling of the target patch distribution based on determinantal point processes (DPP). This acceleration was studied in the following paper.

  The archive release_dpp.zip contains the corresponding source codes. This file has the same structure that release.zip, with some additional files for the DPP simulation. The main script is texto_test_dpp.m. Some pre-estimated models are available in the textures folder. See readme.txt for details about the usage.
