ASCII generator - image to text, image to image, video to video

ASCII generator

  • Given input image, you could generate ASCII art stored under text format (.txt)
  • Given input image, you could generate ASCII art stored under image formats (.png, .jpg, ...). In each format, there are 2 options: Black background and white characters, or vice versa
  • Given input video, you could generate ASCII art stored under video formats (.avi, .mp4, ...)

Video to video

By running the sript video2video.py with different values for background and mode, we will have following outputs:


Input video


White-background simple-character ASCII output


Black-background simple-character ASCII output


White-background complex-character ASCII output


Black-background complex-character ASCII output

Image to text

By running the sript img2txt.py with different values for mode, we will have following outputs:

![input](/content/images/2018/10/input.jpg)
Input image

![demo_image_simple](/content/images/2018/10/demo_image_simple.png)
Simple character ASCII output

![demo_image_complex](/content/images/2018/10/demo_image_complex.png)
Complex character ASCII output

Image to image

By running the sript img2img.py with different values for background and mode, we will have following outputs:

![input](/content/images/2018/10/input.jpg)
Input image

![output_simple_white_200](/content/images/2018/10/output_simple_white_200.jpg)
White-background simple-character ASCII output

![output_simple_black_200](/content/images/2018/10/output_simple_black_200.jpg)
Black-background simple-character ASCII output

![output_complex_white_200](/content/images/2018/10/output_complex_white_200.jpg)
White-background complex-character ASCII output

![output_complex_black_200](/content/images/2018/10/output_complex_black_200.jpg)
Black-background complex-character ASCII output
