Creates a new image rendered by moving automata (threads or worms) feeding from the original.
Works on color, gray, and indexed images. Ignores the selection and alpha.
The effects may be extremely varied; the examples are a small sample.
Appears in the menus under Filters>Map>Mycelium.
See the README file for a discussion of the parameters and more.
To install, uncompress the archive somewhere. Then move to the standard plug-ins directory:
- the file plugin-mycelium.py
- the directory pluginMycelium (a Python package)
- the directory pixmap (a Python package)
Also, change permissions on plugin-mycelium.py to make it executable (as always for Python plugins.)
It can be slow: experiment with small images.
On Wiki, a place to start (although Mycelium are not Paterson worms): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paterson%27s_worms
