Thread: Vectorized MSPA - Cascade wallpapers? We got them.

  1. #1

    Vectorized MSPA - Cascade wallpapers? We got them.

    Vector images use points, not pixels, to make images. The upshot is that you can zoom in on them infinitely. This is kinda like a desktop-maker thread.

    Also: If there is a specific panel you want that was uploaded before April 2011, and it's not included in this catalogue, check out The Everything Box, an automatic vectorization of all the panels (But not flashes) up to that point by Alec Trevelyan first before making a request. The auto-vectorization had trouble with gradients, so by all means make a request if the quality of the specific panel you really want is poor. If it's nice though, upload it so we can put it in the catalogue!





    So, be clear what you ask for.
    If you want a frame, tell me what one in the gif and I'll do it.
    If you want textbubbles gone, ask for it.
    Check if there's a higher resolution version in the art index.
    If your image was like Becnight, I'll clean up any 1 pixel smudges and any that turn out ugly. Tell me if you want more or less.
    You will be given, by default, the image at 4x resolution in .png format. Ask for the .svg or .ai file if you need it so badly, or provide your desktop size or aspect ratio.

    Would this one work, or is there too much "static"?

    I have to say, that first Dave Hero Mode one is amazing. I don't have anything for you though, but keep up the good work!

    Oh. I expected manual vectorization upon seeing the title. Could've been sweet.

    Either of these would make great vectors I think:

    I can't believe no one has suggested this pic of Terezi yet.

    They look great but could someone clarify the term "vectorize" as used in this context? Im a little of a image term loser.
    Edit: ok looking at the op helps me, but why do they end up simplified as an outcome?

    Re: I'll vectorize most Homestuck panels for you.

    ^ From what I'm thinking, it converting the image from a raster image (pixels) to a smooth vector image (objects w/math). Then saving as high-size, high-quality .png format. Which is a raster format anyway so it's converted back to pixels but that's fine because .png's cool.


    Yay! Speaking of which, could we get vector formats of these images, e.g. I'm thinking like a .svg file?

    EDIT also @ Tolma: The tracing process of an image has various levels of quality, with max retaining almost the perfect jaggedness of the original image. Lower qualities smooth out the graphics. Either way, the image, once converted, is infinitely scalable.

    More then likely the Op is using either Illustrator's or anther programs Trace tool which converts Raster to Vector. However, if you don't set up the setting correctly or the detail is too high it tends to lose detail unless you go back and edit it personally which can take a few minutes to a few hours depending on the image.

    Hooray for using the distance between points to calculate shape.
