Turns Images Into Techy Artwork!
DMesh is a custom creative application that turns images into techy artwork. It works by analyzing an image and generating a triangulation pattern for a beautiful finished product. To build the program, a groundbreaking mix of computer vision technologies were employed to make DMesh for someone without any design background.
Check user showcase at the DMesh site. You’ll get an idea of how you use Dmesh for your project.
[ Key Features ]
Auto Point Generation:
DMesh provides auto-generated points, which is useful for people doing animations or larger batches of images. Where other tools only allow manual use, DMesh analyzes the image, adds points and plays with the density accordingly while reducing noise in the mesh.
Manual Point Editing Tool:
Control the number of mesh points dynamically: add more for a realistic result, or subtract to make the image more abstract.
Export as Bitmap...
DMesh suuport to export images as bitmaps, vectors or 3D data for maximum flexibility and scope.
Computer Vision Technology:
Auto Point Generation is built based on computer vision technology so the results are closer to the original source and working with animation files can get more continuity between frames and less noise in the mesh.
Working with Sequenced Images (Pro version only):
Import/export sequenced images automatically, making it easier for motion designers. Video import/export is in the works.
Dynamic Mesh Density Control (Pro version only):
This allows users to control number of mesh dynamically so realistic result having more meshes or abstract one having less meshes can be made easily.

"Get triangulated." - Creativity
"Latest project that utilises a very similar technique is DMesh, a custom software made in Cinder by Dofl Yun..." - Creative Applications Network
What's New in Version 1.4
- Fixed a crash issue happened rarely by loading an image first time.
- Made functions simpler
Still in beta
Mostly does what it’s supposed to but:
1) No zoom so only works on images that fit in your screen. So not useful for serious press work
2) No support for mesh size tho you can try your luck with the brush tool
3) Interface is cumbersome. Also doesn’t support copy/paste in open/save dialogues
The “Pro” version only seems to add 3d-specific saving tools, still no zoom
