Periodic Spatial Generative Adversarial Networks

This code implements Periodic Spatial Generative Adversarial Networks (PSGANs) on top of Lasagne/Theano. The code was tested on top of Lasagne (version 0.2.dev1) and Theano (0.9.0dev2).

Update 13.12.2018

A Pytorch version of this texture synthesis method is now available at https://github.com/zalandoresearch/famos

Very Brief Model Description

PSGANs can generate sample textures of arbitrary size that look strikingly similar - but not exactly the same - compared to a single (or several) source image(s).

  • PSGANs can be thought of as a convolutional roll-out of Radford et al.'s deep convolutional generative adversarial networks for texture synthesis
  • the fully convolutional nature allows for real-time generation of high resolution images
  • the method can fuse multiple source images and is highly scalable w.r.t. to output texture size and allows for generation of tiled textures
  • can learn accurately periodic textures
  • can learn whole texture manifolds, allowing sampling and morphing between the training textures

Please take a look at our paper for detailed description of PSGANs https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.06566 .

Examples

NEW: better use of inference mode in the Ipython Notebook tutorial using pretrained statistics. In addition, a beatiful-looking pretrained model of DTD Scaly category is checked-in.

NEW: You can follow a step-by-step tutorial on inference and training PSGAN in the newly checked-in Ipython Notebook PSGAN tutorial for sampling and training.

You can generate samples from a stored model. E.g. you can use the checked-in model:

python demo_generation.py models/hex1_filters64_npx161_5gL_5dL_0Global_3Periodic_FalseAffine_30Local_epoch18.psgan

This model was trained on a single texture from the DTD Textures dataset, category Honeycomb https://www.robots.ox.ac.uk/~vgg/data/dtd/. Example image:

We have also provided an example of learning a whole texture manifold from the whole DTD Honeycomb category

python demo_generation.py models/honey_filters64_npx161_5gL_5dL_60Global_3Periodic_FalseAffine_30Local_epoch100.psgan

Training the Model

To train the model on new images, edit the config.py file and set the texture_dir variable to a folder containing the image(s) you want to learn from. You might also want to change other parameters of the network there (e.g. depth, number of filters per layer etc...). Then run

python psgan.py

to train the model. Snapshots of the model will be stored in the subfolder models/ and samples after each epoch will be stored in samples/
