Texture Generators/Creativity Exploration

Texture Processor

Quote from: Paurex Website
Texture Processor is the unique program for creating various textures. The basic algorithm placed into the heart of Texture Processor allows to get practically unlimited quantity of complex textures in a minimal amount of time. Texture Processor is intended both for 3d-artists and web-designers. Besides, any other users not able to draw in various graphic editors, will receive full pleasure and breadth of actions, working with Texture Processor.

One I did a few years ago is below which is seamless and it looks like stamps to me.

sTile is a program designed to create 'Seamless Tiles'; small images that, when lined up adjacent with itself, makes a seamless pattern with no discernible borders. It can do other things, but that was (and still is) its primary purpose.  It is based on gradients, the gradual shading from one color to another.  Best results for 3D look is to use a light color and a dark color for the gradient.  After the gradient, there are numerous 'filters' and 'distortions' that can be applied to the image to alter the appearance in a variety of ways.

Heres a couple of my newly created ones for the 3rd Edition which will go on my site when I get around 68 or so!  These are did in sTile also and as far as I can tell both are seamless.  :)

This thread reminds me of a cool shareware I've tried several years ago (somewhen in the last millenium). It was called Infinity Textures and offered a lot of generators, filters, presets and, most importantly, seamless drawing tools (you were working on a tiled, infinite canvas) so you could give the texture some sort of shape before working with filters.
I would recommend Infinity Textures to anyone but I can't - it has been renamed to TextureMaker :). TextureMaker seems to offer some amazing features - extracting a texture from a photo while adjusting perspective and removing illumination gradients, generating seamless animated textures using particle systems, preview textures mapped onto 3D models, a terrain renderer similar to good old TerraGen (something you can definitely waste your time with :D)...
So if you're looking for a professional texture generator / editor with some additional time-saving and time-wasting ;) features this seems to be worth a try (30€ for private use, 65€ for commercial use, and there's a feature-limited freeware, too).
