VoronoiCurrent version of Voronoi, the ultimate Gimp pattern generator, is 2.2: NEWS. Gimp plugin registry record: Voronoi Menu path: Filters → Render → Pattern → Voronoi Download
Required Gimp versionGimp 1.2 for version 1.0, Gimp 2.0 for version 2.2. DescriptionTechnically, Voronoi generates 2D Voronoi diagrams of various semirandom sets of points and then visualizes them somehow. However you don't need to know what Voronoi diagrams are to create great patterns with it. See Grid generator and Visualization for parameter description and examples. What are Voronoi diagramsImagine a finite set of points in some metric space (or just just normal ndimensional space, if you don't know much about metric spaces). If you now take any point of the space, there definitely exists a point of the set which is closest to this point. This way the set breaks the space to parts, (called cells below) each consisting of points nearest to a one point of the set. This division is what is called Voronoi diagram of the set (roughly). If you know something about Voronoi diagrams, you may be interested in the fact the plugin uses a O(n) algorithm. Yes, I know it's impossible. More precisely, it's genereally impossible, but in my particular case, a linear algorithm can be found. ExamplesThe old 1.x examples:
Of course it is still possible to generate these images with current plugin version, but be sure not to miss Grid generator and Visualization where many more and better examples can be found. Screenshots
