tessellimage - Converts an image to triangles using Delaunay tessellation.


tessellimage [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-delay number] [-duration number] [-duration2 number] [-max-depth number] [-no-outline] [-no-fill-screen] [-fps]


Converts an image to triangles using Delaunay tessellation, and animates the result at various depths. More triangles are allocated to visually complex parts of the image. This is accomplished by first computing the first derivative of the image: the distance between each pixel and its neighbors. Then the Delaunay control points are chosen by selecting those pixels whose distance value is above a certain threshold: those are the pixels that have the largest change in color/brightness.


-visual visual
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
Draw on the root window.
-delay number
Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 30000 (0.03 seconds).
-duration number
Length of time until loading a new image. Default: 2 minutes.
-duration2 number
Length of time until increasing or decreasing the triangulation depth. Default: 0.4 seconds.
-max-depth number
The maximum number of triangles to render. Default: 40000.
-outline | -no-outline
Whether to outline the triangles.
-fill-screen | -no-fill-screen
Whether to zoom in on the image to completely fill the screen, or to center it.
-fps | -no-fps
Whether to show a frames-per-second display at the bottom of the screen.
