To get something festive to drink over the holidays I have ordered a special MTG-Beer from a brewery. It’s finest Pils in a can with Wilber on it! (Why a can and not a bottle – there is no “Make a Bottle Filter” in GIMP.)
In this episode I explore the Map to Object filter. It can render an image on a plane, a box, a sphere and a cylinder. The default dimensions of the cylinder are that of a beer can. Quite significant insight into the world of programmers. (BTW, the box preset is a cube, not a pizza box…..)
The image used in the show is stolen from Steve Czajka.
But before that is a look back onto the last show. Saul Goode shows a much easier way to generate patterns with the clipboard and I explain how I got the dots of different sizes in the blog image.
For all of you a happy holiday!
I hope to be back still in this year, so I’ll keep the new year wishes for later. As a distraction the 28c3 is coming up 10 minutes away from my home. I got no tickets but hope to get in there at night and watch some stream on the day.
