gramzoom

Zooming in on images that optimize the gram matrix from another image.

The project page for this repository can be found at:

https://douweosinga.com/projects/gramzoom

Installation

To setup a virtual environment with python3 and the dependencies installed, execute in a shell:

python3 -m venv venv3
source venv3/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt

You can now run the main script:

python gramzoom.py --steps=660 \
                   --target_size=640 \
                   --zoom_from=10 \
                   --samples_per_step=7 \
                   --input=kittens.png \
                   --output=kittens.mp4

And it should create a zooming in movie:

Kittens

Usage

The command line parameters shouldn't surprise anybody. steps determines how many steps to run the script. target_size determines how big the movie will be. zoom_from is a bit more tricky, basically this determines the number of warm-up frames before we start zooming and saving frames. samples_per_step determines how many times we run the algorithm per frame - more results in slower progress but higher quality frames. Then there is the input and output.
