DITHR TOOL
Version 0.21





OVERVIEW
LICENSE
SUPPORT
DITHR is a web tool on p5.js that allows users to process images and videos by applying rasterization algorithms with various customizable filters and custom gradient maps based on WebGL shaders. In addition, the program has several ready-made presets for quick application of rasterization effects, plus you can export and save your own presets as JSON files for easy reuse.

Currently, the program allows you to choose one of the algorithms to process the image:

  • ASCII text conversion using various built-in fonts
  • Ordered dithering based on several Bayer matrices
  • Basic halftone rasterization
  • Predefined patterns with blue noise textures for the void-and-cluster dithering method

If you want to know more about processing images with dithering algorithm, please take a look here:

The tool is available as a free version. The free version is fully functional but adds watermarks to exported graphics. This allows you to thoroughly evaluate its capabilities before committing.

To remove watermarks and obtain usage rights for the tool, please purchase a license key at Gumroad. You can find the detailed Terms of Use agreement and descriptions of license types below.

The tool accepts raster images in JPG/PNG/WebP formats as source material, and it also support transparency. To import video into the program, you can use such formats as MP4/MOV/WebM and probably other formats are also supported, I haven't tested it out ;) 

  • Video: The video support in the program is experimental and I don't guarantee that it will work consistently! Video size and it’s quality directly affects performance and depending on the hardware you’re running, you may experience occasional crashes, freezes and slowdowns.

  • Recording: During video export, the program records data directly to the buffer in real time, so there may be problems with framerate stability and smoothness of animation. I recommend to make several recordings in a row and choose the smoothest version, it's also recommended to turn off all background processes for better performance.

  • Browser: I recommend running the tool in Chrome browser, this is especially important for processing video files; for image processing I didn't notice a strong difference between Chrome/Firefox/Safari. In case you experience poor performance, try switching to a different browser.

  • Screen size: A minimum resolution of 800x600 is required.

Since the code is hosted on Openprocessing.org, there might be times when the program is temporarily offline during a site maintenance.

Please let me know if you're running into any issues or discover a bug while using the program.
