AI tool to create tileable images
A bit of a cross-post, but I thought others might find this interesting. It's an AI tool that generates tileable material images. It can take in a reference image and/or prompt and has various configuration settings.
Use the keyword "seamless" to generate images that tile in all 4 directions.
"neon" and "cyberpunk" as qualifiers can net you some neat results as well.
I've noticed a lot of the output quality is, unsurprisingly, how well you can "zero in" which terms are well-represented inside the training set. You can feed the same image back into the tool multiple times to refine the results.
The best way I've found tends to follow the pattern:
- Play around with terms to get something vaguely like what you want. Settle on a best candidate.
- Pass the best candidate image back in to the tool and try more qualifiers to "hone in" on what you want.
- Repeat until you are happy with the result.
This, like any tool, requires some learning through experience to use most effectively. But even so it's pretty neat for what it can do.
Oh sweet! Glad it works online. So far have gotten patterns but nothing that could be a widely-used textures, so I assume I just need better prompts. The current one I used is taking a while to get anything and I hope it's just the AI putting cooling tubes to work and that it isn't broken :S
If this can really make a lot of great textures then dang that's a machine godsend!
EDIT: yeah it might be broken for the time being x-x
Hope it works out! One other tip is to use at least 512x512 and downscale as the smaller sizes tend to produce worse results, I've found.
