Texture

TEXTURE is a .SEQ color animation showing the head of that famous Cigar chomping Cyber Man from Antic. His head is mapped onto two sides of a bending and rotating sheet, and on a spinning and tumbling cylinder.

Antic Software published a variety of related Cyber-products to extend the functionality of 'Cyber Studio CAD-3D'. The texturing extension 'Cyber Texture' was an unusual program by David Ramsden that used a picture file as a basis for creating a 3D object that looked like the picture, often warped or distorted into some non-flat form. The technique used was a peculiarly brute-force imitation of what is known in computer graphics as «texture mapping».
