cjordan Posted April 7, 2009 Share Posted April 7, 2009 Sorry for the lame subject of this post, but I'm not an imaging guru by any stretch. I just figured that someone here would know how to do what it is that I'm trying to do. I'm looking at a website that has a custom design tool (http://www.brownjordan.com/econfig/inde ... cutta%20II). It shows a piece of furnature (a chair in the case of the link above) and the manufacturer has all sorts of fabrics that can be used for the cushion of the chair and several colors or textures that can be used for the frame of the chair. Now, it's not too difficult to see that they've got an image for each possible combination of cushion fabric and frame color, and how they know which image to show. My question is about creating ALL of those images (in the case of the link above 2,457 images). They're not being generated on the fly I'm pretty sure, but I don't know *how* they were generated. Is this something that PDN could do? is it just a careful selection and bucket fill? If it's a bucket fill, how exactly do you fill something that isn't a solid color, but is rather a pattern (for the sake of argument let's say paisley or something) that matches exactly a specific textile that my client can apply to the cushion of a chair. Can anyone help me on how this sort of image is created? Can PDN do the job? Would I *really* have to create each and every image by hand? Thanks.
