I worked hard this week end to implement an idea I got for doing style-transfer.
I’ve ended up with a prototype that is really capable, so I wanted to share some results with you.
There is still a lot of work and testing to do, to make it as a usable filter for everyone, but at this point I’m now pretty sure this will be done one day
Style transfer consists in transferring colors and textures from a “style” image to a “target” image.
Like in the example below, where I used the filter to transfer the style of the Van Gogh’s Starry Night to a photograph of a cat (so, generating the famous Starry Cat painting ).
Here are some results I got, with this filter prototype. I’ve run my experiments on a 4-core laptop (running Ubuntu Linux), and every result took less than 1 mn to generate, which is not real time but still reasonable.
I hope I will be able to release it soon !
