… The application contains everything needed to create seamless textures for use in 3D rendering packages, game development, web graphics, image and video editing.
It can create procedural and hand painted textures from scratch, remove visible seams from existing images, crop textures from photos by applying a perspective correction, render seamless tiles from structure sample patches and combine existing textures and height maps with realistic illumination.
Also animated textures are no problem with Texture Maker. The program is even capable of generating seamless animation loops.
Texture Maker can be extended with plugins and automates complex operations with its scripting abilities. Nearly all functions take advantage of multiple CPUs in the system.
All functions are optimized for seamless textures
