Just finished rewriting the backend to Pretty Pictures from Genetic Algorithms in C++ (it used to be in Python). It's easy to forget how much faster C++ can be than Python - I even turned on an option by default to make all images color, which made things unacceptably slow in Python. It's fun to play with!
Comment from copperwolf:
You still mess with that thing? :) I have to admit that of all the school assignments I've ever done, it's probably the one I would be most likely to tinker with again. Do you have a gallery of your best pictures?
I don't see any of those blobby amoeba shapes. Whatever function that was, it made some of the most interesting pictures.
Comment from gregstoll:
I do from time to time :-)
I keep a list on the page of interesting functions, but they're not super great or anything.
Yeah, I never implemented the Perlin noise ones, although I really should! Maybe sometime soon...
