Abstract: In this paper, we present a novel method for the optimal texture sampling and texture synthesis using vector quantization clustering. The synthesizing process selects an initial texture block from the input sample texture and then iteratively searches all the texture patches from the sampled texture space for a patch whose boundary best matches the current boundary of the synthesized texture. To control the number of the searching patches while preserving the seamless visual quality, we present two effective patch sampling techniques, namely uniformly distributed patch sampling and patch quantization clustering. The sampled texture patches will then be further optimized using principle component analysis. In this scheme, the complexity of the patch search in each step can be significantly reduced and thus the seamless texture synthesis can be performed in real-time. Experimental results show that the proposed schemes are of excellent efficiency for the visually seamless texture synthesis of a wide variety of textures ranging from regular to stochastic can be achieved.
