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.

What's New in Version 1.4
- Collada(dae) export.
- Simpler UI.
- Fixed a crash issue happened rarely by loading an image first time.
Collada (dae) export
Neat app, however, if you are planning to import Collada (.dae) files from this app into Cinema 4d (as showcased on website) it only works with the older version, R13.
Newer Cinema 4D R14 and R15 do not read the collada files exported from this app properly, resulting in geometry with no material information attached to it!
People with only the newer versions of Cinema 4D will assume the app doesn't work correctly and request a refund, so please update quickly! I also tried importing unsuccessfully in the latest Modo version.
Good app, but no zoom!
I actually find that this app works well. It crashes every time you click command plus or minus (Zoom on Adobe products) so I find that to be an annoying habit to overcome while using it. The app has no zoom functionality, So importing images that are bigger than the dimensions of your screen is not a possibility, because you only see one segment of the image, and you can not move around, or zoom. Super frusterating. If they fix that issue, then I would love the app.
I LOVE this app. I just wish it had a zoom feature. That’s the ONLY thing preventing me from buying pro.
And the iphone version needs image importing (:
