input exemplars output hybrids input exemplars Figure 1: Image hybrids. Given a set of input images (left), our algorithm automatically produces arbitrarily many hybrid images (right). Abstract Example-based texture synthesis algorithms generate novel texture images from example data. A popular hierarchical pixel-based approach uses spatial jitter to introduce diversity, at the risk of breaking coarse structure beyond repair. We propose a multiscale descriptor that enables appearance-space
